As for the Oregon Ducks, the Pac-12 regular season champs, they clocked in at the No. 7 seed in the West region. Their match-up? They will draw the No. 10 seed VCU Rams. Oregon won 11 of their final 12 games prior to their loss to Oregon State in the Pac-12 Tournament semi-finals, and a lot of it can be credited to their hot shooting and depth coming off of the bench.
