Oregon dropped two spots in the Associated Press men's basketball poll Monday following back-to-back losses at the Battle 4 Atlantis.

The Ducks (6-2) are down to No. 13 after going 1-2 in the Bahamas beginning with a 71-69 win over Seton Hall, which fell to No. 16. Oregon lost 73-72 in overtime to ninth-ranked Gonzaga and 78-74 against No. 7 North Carolina.

“In board play, execution-wise, free throws, we’ve just got to get a little tougher,” UO coach Dana Altman said following the loss to the Tar Heels. “I liked our efforts, I thought we played as hard as we could, but we have to be more physical on the boards. We took it weak to the basket a few times and we’ve really got to take it strong. We just didn’t finish on plays.”

Oregon made 38 of 62 free throws during the tournament for 61.3%. The Ducks were at 67.7% through their first five games.

“The free-throw line killed us,” Altman said. “It really hurts when you lose a couple games to a couple good teams and you really don’t do anything that is under your control. We’ve just got to shoot free throws better.”

Oregon outrebounded Seton Hall 39-28, but lost the battle of the boards to both Gonzaga and North Carolina by a total of 97-84.

“We knew that rebounding was a concern and in the last two games I think it was the difference,” Altman said.

Oregon has split four games against teams in the top 16, including a 82-74 win over No. 15 Memphis last month in Portland. The Ducks visit Michigan, which entered the national rankings at No. 4 this week after winning the Battle 4 Atlantis, on Dec. 14.

Arizona, which is 9-0, moved ahead of Oregon at No. 12 while Colorado is up to No. 20 followed by Washington at No. 22.

Oregon returns to Matthew Knight Arena on Saturday to host Hawaii (6-2) at 4 p.m. A report from Tipton Edits, a college basketball recruiting site, indicated that five-star freshman N’Faly Dante could debut for the Ducks against the Rainbow Warriors after making a successful appeal to the NCAA to be allowed to play immediately.

Dante was not cleared to enroll at Oregon for the start of fall term and was expected to join the Ducks for the start of winter term Dec. 14. Oregon has not clarified Dante’s status with the team as it returns to practice this week.

Oregon senior guard Payton Pritchard made the all-tournament team in the Bahamas after totaling 52 points, 16 assists and six steals in three games. He made 11-of-25 3-pointers during the week.

Junior guard Chris Duarte was nominated for Pac-12 player of the week. He averaged 14.3 points and 7.0 rebounds while making 5-of-15 3-pointers.
