EUGENE, Ore. -- Oregon and Oregon State men's basketball is the most contested rivalry in all of college hoops. Saturday's meeting between the two teams marks the 355th time they're playing one another.

And in 2021, it's also a battle between two brothers.

Zach and Gabe Reichle were born and raised in Wilsonville, Oregon. Zach is currently a senior guard for the Beavers while Gabe is a freshman on the Ducks.

Oregon head coach Dana Altman told Gabe he hopes he doesn't share the Ducks scouting report with his brother.

Beavers head coach Wayne Tinkle believes both the Reichles know the importance of the game, but added that it's such a cool moment for the family.

The Ducks and Beavers will battle it out on the court at Matthew Knight Arena. This is the first of two meeting this season. Tip off is set for 7:30 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks.
