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.
