It’s good to be the No. 1 seed.
Oregon looked more than deserving of its top spot in the NCAA Tournament on Friday with a 91-52 showing against Holy Cross. But, beware the Round of 32 upsets.
After all, Saint Joseph’s is on a roll. The Hawks are riding a bit of an improbable postseason run, holding on for a dramatic victory over Cincinnati in their first round tilt.

Game Preview: Here’s something we all kind of already knew, but maybe needed a reminder of; Oregon is good at playing basketball.
The Ducks, to some extent, proved that on Friday night with a 91-52 victory over Holy Cross in the first round. Now, we know, it’s a 1-vs-16 game. Take it all with a gran of salt. And, to some extent, we agree with that.
But that kind of performance also deserves some recognition because, well, that kind of lopsided performance is impressive.
It also introduced Chris Boucher to the national stage. He finished with 20 points, many of them dunks, while the Ducks saw three other players finish in double digits.
If Boucher can get going again tonight, Saint Joseph’s improbable postseason run may just come to a screeching halt.
