EUGENE, Ore. -- No. 14 Oregon is fresh off an impressive win over touted freshman James Wiseman and No. 15 Memphis. 

The Ducks will look to continue its surging start to the season against UT Arlington on Sunday at home. 

The Mavericks will be a much different challenge than Memphis. 

While Memphis relies on Wiseman and its inside presence, UT Arlington is more prone to scoring from the perimeter. 

The Mavericks rank No. 11 in all of college basketball in most three-pointers made.

"You see all the upsets happening early in the college season in which November and early December it's always the case if you're not ready to go," Oregon head coach Dana Altman said. "Especially with a team that shoots 35 threes a game, if they get it going it could be a tough night."

The Ducks know they'll have to face teams of all different styles down the line. 

"They play a different style than most teams," senior guard Payton Pritchard said. "It's a good test. Sometimes you got to prepare for teams like this. We're going to have to get ready regardless."

Tip off is scheduled for 5 p.m. on Sunday at Matthew Knight Arena.
