Oregon Beats Down Saint Louis-Ducks to Play Cards

Ok, so Oregon is a 12-seed and to some, that seems pretty shocking that they’re in the Sweet 16.  After all, they had to beat a 5 and 4 seed to get there.  I just am not that surprised.  Oregon was so vastly underrated coming into this tournament, and was underseeded.  No way that the PAC-12 Champs that had a record of 26-8 coming into conference play should be a 12 seed.  The same can be said for basically every PAC-12 tourney team; each of them was extremely undervalued.

Anyways, my point is that Oregon need not be overlooked.  Some people simply wrote off their Oklahoma State win as a fluke, but after beating the A-10 Champ Saint Louis Billikens, a team that many people thought would BEAT Louisville, Oregon should not be overlooked.  More to come on this story in the future.  Go Cards.
