It’s a Pac 12 after dark showdown on Wednesday night.
The Oregon Ducks make a trip down to California to take on the Golden Bears.
This is the second meeting of the year between the two teams. Oregon won the first match up 86-63.
The Oregon Ducks have used the momentum they used from a deep NCAA Tournament run last year, to have a very successful season so far. This years team looks like it has a real shot to make some noise come March and the NCAA Tournament.
The Ducks come into this game with a 24-4 record and sit in 2nd place in the Pac 12 conference. They have won four straight games including scoring 101 points in their victory over Colorado in their last match up.
The Ducks strength is on the offensive side of the ball. They like to get the ball up and down the court and really try and outrun their competition. They come into this game averaging 79.3 points per game scored. They only give up 65 points on the defensive side of the ball.
The Ducks are led by Junior forward Dillon Brooks. He is averaging 15.4 points, 2.9 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game.
For the Ducks to have success they need to try and slow the pace of the game. Cal has a good defense and likes to play a slower pace so if they can speed that up they should have success.
Cal Golden Bears
The California Golden Bears are right on the bubble for the NCAA Tournament, but right now are probably on the outside looking in. A win over the Oregon Ducks would put them squarely back in the field of 68.
The Golden Bears looked to be in good position to make the NCAA Tournament until they lost to the Stanford Cardinals in their last game. The Cardinals have been bad all year, so that loss really hurt their chances.
The Golden Bears play a slower tempo game and are good on the defensive side of the ball. They only average 69 points a night well giving up 62 on the defensive end.
Cal is led by Senior Guard Jabari Bird and Sophomore Forward Ivan Rabb.
They both score over 14 points per game and combine for more then 15 rebounds. For the Bears to pull the upset they both need to have huge games on the offensive side of the floor.
