Sweet 16 college basketball action pits the Oregon Ducks against the Virginia Cavaliers.
The red hot Oregon Ducks routed the UC Irvine Anteaters 79-54 as a five point favorite on Sunday night to advance to the Sweet 16.
Payton Pritchard was the Ducks top weapon with 18 points, four pulls and seven helpers while Louis King tossed in 16 points and snagged four boards.
Ehab Amin gave Virginia 12 points, four pulls and three steals followed by Kenny Wooten who added another eleven points and seven blocks.
The Virginia Cavaliers turned to their defense in upending the Oklahoma Sooners 63-51 as an eleven point favorite to head to the Sweet 16.
Mamadi Diakite paced the balanced Cavaliers offense with 14 points and nine rebounds followed by Ty Jerome who netted 12 points.
De’Andre Hunter gave Virginia ten points and three yanks while Kihei Clark and Braxton Key tossed in nine points each with Key hauling in nine rebounds.
Oregon Ducks are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games and are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up win and are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall and are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games.
Virginia Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and are 44-19-1 ATS in their last 64 games overall and are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 Thursday games and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 NCAA Tournament games.
Oregon has been impressive in their two tournament wins and going back a month ago. Virginia needed a second half rally to upend Gardner-Webb in their NCAA opener and had trouble putting Oklahoma away. I think taking the points with the red hots Ducks is the way to go…
