Oregon played two rounds before being dismissed by Wisconsin in last year’s NCAA Tournament. This year the Ducks are 24-8 overall, 13-5 Pac-12, finished runner-up behind Arizona in the conference tournament and received a ticket to the dance by the selection committee.

The Ducks will play Oklahoma State in the round of 64.

The Cowboys finished 18-13 overall and 8-10 in the Big 12. Oklahoma State was knocked out of the Big 12 Tournament by in-state rival Oklahoma. Oklahoma State was sent home early last March when they fell to Gonzaga, 85-77. Fast-forward to this year and the Cowboys’ record may not show it, they have shown strength yet again. OK State finished 18-13 overall and 8-10 in the Big 12. The Cowboys also notched wins over ranked opponents such as Baylor, Texas and Kansas.
