Oregon basketball scored a nice Pac-12 win over Stanford tonight, but after the game, the program’s Twitter account was pretty clearly hacked.
Oregon beat Stanford 69-52, a conference win made more impressive by the absence of the Ducks’ top player Dillon Brooks, who missed the game with a sprained ankle.
After the game, however, @OregonMBB was doing a bit more than recapping the game.

It was deleted pretty quickly, but a number of people noticed.

You can never say the Oregon basketball twitter account isn't honest https://t.co/9ecnd54Iqr

Perhaps it was just a confusing autocorrect, and the tweet was supposed to be “I win often.” Oregon basketball is 18-2 on the year.
