The Arizona State Sun Devils have been the better team over the course of the season, but they were rocked when these two teams met a couple of weeks ago, and they know they're pretty much going to the big dance regardless of what happens here. The Oregon Ducks need to win this tournament to advance to the NCAA Tournament, and they're playing like it. Oregon has held its first two opponents to a combined 105 points and has forced 32 turnovers. Sedrick Barefield, one of the top players in the Pac-12, was shutdown last night. Oregon has been impressive and is probably the favorite to win this tournament right now. I'll lay the bucket.
