Ducks Start Dancing in Milwaukee Against a Known Opponent


It has been an up and down season for the Oregon Basketball team. Following a 13-0 Non Conference start, things fell apart during the first half of the Pac-12 Conference season. Following a 2-8 start they fell out of the polls, after being a Top 10 team. Oregon Senior Mike Moser lost his touch and Junior Joseph Young, who was at the beginning of the year a Player of the Year Candidate had good games but dropped from the National Radar. Two months ago the team could have gone in either direction, but leadership took hold as Oregon went on an eight game winning streak beating teams they had lost to the first time around and building a resume worthy of an at large bid for the NCAA Tournament.

Oregon will start post season play as a #7 Seed in the West Region. Games will be played in Milwaukee. The Ducks will face off with Brigham Young in the first round. Of course these two teams know each other since they faced off in the regular season. Dana Altman and company beat BYU 100-96 in overtime back on December 21st. The other side of the bracket features American and the #2 Seed Wisconsin. Both games will be played on Thursday and winners will face off on Sunday for the chance to move on.

When we know when the Ducks will play we will pass it along. In the meantime you can download and print your bracket.
