Oklahoma Sooners vs Oregon Ducks Preview
Top seeded Oregon Ducks will face second seeded Oklahoma, a 77-63 winner over third seeded Texas A&M in the regional final Saturday.
Oregon used its quickness and talent to bounce the Duke Blue Devils from the West Regional. Dillon Brooks scored 22 points, sinking four 3-pointers, in the Ducks’ 82-68 win over Duke in the semifinalsr.
The Sooners (28-7) wiped out a seven point deficit with a 39-13 run to close the half for a 45-26 lead. The Aggies (28-9) never recovered. Oklahoma wasn’t very good from the foul line making just four of nine free throws (44.4 percent). However, the Sooners hit 49.2 percent of their field-goal attempts and canned 11 of 25 (44 percent) from behind the 3-point arc.
The Sooners did not look like a team that could beat Oregon on Thursday as the Aggies were able to hole Wooden Buddy Hield to 17 points. He also committed a game-high five turnovers.
Buddy Hield 28 PTS, 6 REB, 0.5 BLK
Isaiah Cousins 15 PTS, 5 REB, 4.6 AST

Dillon Brooks 15 PTS, 5 REB, 43.4 FG%

Oklahoma vs Oregon Prediction
The top two seeded teams make it to the finals which is a vindication for the NCAA Committee that came up with the seedings….remember all of the crying over Michigan State. These two teams can shoot and shoot and shoot. They will need two as the athleticism and guard play will lead to an up and down tempo. I like Buddy Hield as a scorer but he trys to do too much sometimes and it leads to turnovers. In a high scoring game the Ducks will force enough turnovers to win the game.
