Oregon will be giving away Phil Knight bobblehead dolls on Saturday at the Ducks' home basketball game against USC.

The Nike chairman has become Oregon's most notable and beloved graduate; establishing a Nike-driven athletic culture around Eugene and recently donating millions of dollars to improve the Ducks' facilities. Oregon's home for basketball, Matthew Knight Arena, is named for Knight's late son.
