Oregon Continues Run as Nation's Hottest Team

In the first half, the Ducks were clearly the better basketball team, and their defense was suffocating the the Billikens offense and closing the first half with a 16 point, 35-19 lead. Fortunately for Oregon fans, the Ducks never let up, defeating Saint Louis 74-57.


Many said that Oregon was vastly under-seeded as a 12th seed, and, for the second straight game, they have proven it. The Billikens likewise came into the tournament hot and were a trendy pick with some, however, they were no match for the Ducks.


Oregon was led by Freshman Damyean Dotson who scored 23 points for the Ducks.


For Louisville, the Ducks have to be among the teams they would least like to see in the Sweet Sixteen. Coming off the Pac-12 Tournament championship, the Ducks have looked outstanding in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament. While the Cardinals will remain the favorite, anyone taking the Ducks lightly does so at their peril.
