Oregon Take Pac-12 Title

How do the experts think the three Pac-12 schools will fare in the 2019 NCAA Tournament? | Tacoma News Tribune

Like Wisconsin, Oregon missed the Big Dance last season, but Dana Altman's squad is back with a vengeance after winning the Pac-12 Tournament and thus securing that conference's automatic bid.

Much like Wisconsin, March mainstay OR returns to the NCAA Tournament after missing last year's Big Dance.

A turnaround for the ages.

No. 12 OR (23-12) vs. Then came the streak of eight wins in a row. Jaylen Nowell had a team-high eight points for the Huskies, as they shot 34 percent from the field and 5-for-23 from deep. The last time OR did that was 1982-83, three years before the shot clock.

No. 11 Arizona State vs. He had 20 points, six rebounds, seven assists and four steals in the title game.

Since the season-ending injury of Bol Bol, the Oregon Ducks have gone through a bit of a rebrand and are finding themselves as a team. Jordan Poole added 13 and Jon Teske chipped in 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The Ducks were always too talented to be outside the Tournament conversation.

Realistic Tournament hopes faded fast for Oregon. Even so, having three teams in this week's field is a bigger achievement than seemed likely as of a month ago.

Unfortunately, Wisconsin drew one of the hottest teams in the entire country in the Round of 64 in OR, and the Ducks also happen to match up extremely well with the Badgers.

CHINA: Woman nearly dies after fruit injection
Zeng is into "unconventional health treatments", and this seems to be one of the more unusual ones she made a decision to follow. She allegedly did nothing about her discomfort until her husband noticed her condition and encouraged her to seek treatment.

This might sound familiar.

Location: SAP Center, San Jose, Calif. Just about every year we see a 12 seed knock off a 5 seed in the tournament, hopefully, Wisconsin doesn't let that happen to them.

The team that advances from Corvallis will head to the Albany Regional for the Sweet 16.

I come off a flawless showing during the Pac-12 tournament, so naturally I am expecting a disastrous followup. The Oregon Women's Basketball team will host Portland State at Matthew Knight Arena on Friday to open the NCAA Tournament. Two Ducks will be making their second NCAA Tournament appearances, while it will be the first for the rest of the squad. Payton Pritchard was the starting point guard on Oregon's 2017 Final Four team. Paul White was a member of Georgetown's 2015 NCAA Tournament team before transferring to Oregon. If the conference champions can beat the Aggies, the Pac-12 will have salvaged something from this basketball season. The agreement runs through the 2025-26 season and is meant to be funded through philanthropy. The Beavers finished third in the Pac-12, and have tallied three wins over ranked opponents. The Ducks are 17-4 since the league moved the championship to the desert in 2013.

Contrary to preseason expectations, the Ducks' upperclassmen have been the story of the year. This matchup will nearly certainly be one of the most popular upset picks of the Round of 64 by both experts and fans, and by the time Friday rolls around, don't be shocked if OR is the Vegas favorite here. The Cavaliers' only other losses this season were to Duke, the overall No. 1 seed.

History supports him. The Pac-12 had only two NCAA teams in 2012, with Nos.

Washington drew Utah State, the victor of the Mountain West Conference. Lou King was also and all-tournament selection after scoring in double figures in all four games. If the Sun Devils can control Shamorie Ponds, they will win. The last time OR did that was early in the 1982-83 season: Rutgers (53), San Diego State (49), St. Olaf (39), Montana State (55), Idaho (56) and Lamar (41).

OR earned its ninth consecutive 20-win season on Wednesday night. They drew the Wisconsin Badgers, led by Ethan Happ and Brad Davidson.

Not surprisingly, OR has set the program record for wins over a nine-season period, now with 233.
