The Oregon Ducks and the Arizona Wildcats meet Friday in Pac-12 Tournament college basketball action from T-Mobile Arena. Let’s get into our Oregon vs Arizona prediction. Check back all season long for free college basketball picks at Sports Chat Place.

Oregon Ducks

The Ducks haven’t had too bad of a season thus far, however they haven’t been able to win more than two consecutive games since mid-January. Oregon finished off the regular season on a 2-2 run with losses to Arizona and Colorado between wins over Oregon State and Utah.

On Thursday in tournament activity versus UCLA, the Ducks eked out another close win. Oregon trailed 34-29 going into the second half, then hit a 39-32 run from there in a comeback result 68-66. N’Faly Dante was the top man with 22 points, six rebounds and four assists.

Arizona Wildcats

Over on the Wildcats’ side, they’ve been a very consistent team all year and haven’t yet lost consecutive games. Arizona had a four-game win streak going recently with victories over Washington, Arizona State, Oregon and UCLA before a regular-season-ending road loss to USC over the weekend.

On Thursday in the tournament rematch versus the Trojans, the Wildcats got some revenge. Arizona stormed out to a 28-16 halftime lead and closed on a 42-33 run for a blowout victory 70-49. KJ Lewis came off the bench to lead the team in scoring with 15 points, six rebounds and two assists.


I’ll probably just stay with Arizona here. The Wildcats played a mostly solid game versus USC in their last outing, bagging 45.6 percent shooting with a 44-30 rebounding advantage. There were some blemishes though: specifically the 14 turnovers and seven missed free throws. Still, it was a nice bounce-back effort and should set Arizona up for a quality performance on Friday.

In the last meeting between these teams on March 2, Arizona took a 103-83 blowout victory at home. The Wildcats shot a stellar 60.9 percent from the field and 56 percent (14-of-25) from 3-point range, but did miss eight of their 19 free throw attempts (57.9 percent). This tournament rematch probably won’t be such a one-sided affair, but Arizona should still be in control if the Wildcats play to their capabilities.
