Oregon is 7–5 and a winner in five of its last six games but the metrics, nor the projections think the Ducks are a Tournament team this year.
Oregon barely cracks KenPom’s top-80 and it is nowhere to be seen in Joe Lunardi’s bracket this week. This is all after a Final Four appearance last season.
But the Ducks lost four guys to the NBA from last season’s team. Dillon Brooks is starting for Memphis and Jordan Bell is playing solid minutes for Golden State.
Payton Pritchard is the only important player from last year’s team back this season and he’s the leading scorers now. Pritchard is averaging over 14 points on .466/.819.412 shooting splits.
USC is an interesting team. It was ranked fairly high to start the season but suffered some losses, not necessarily terrible ones but bad enough to drop it off most people’s radar.
The Trojans lost to A&M (when it was rolling), at SMU and versus Oklahoma (by two) in LA. Then they lost to Princeton by ten in a game they gave up 103.
Now they have lost three in a row and five overall in the conference. They’ve gone right through the toughest part of the conference all on the road (at UCLA, at ASU, at U of A). The losses to UCLA and ASU were by a combined five points.
Bennie Boatwright is back but he’s still only shooting 42 percent from the field. He’s got to get back to being one of the nation’s dominant big men if the Trojans are to make a run, which they most certainly can do if they are fortunate enough to get into the Dance.
