Oregon Ducks Bracketology Updates: Sitting in the 3-4 Range

Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports

The Ducks have a protected seed in all major bracketology projections.

Tuesday means that the newest bracketology updates are out. Here is a compilation of where Oregon stands:

ESPN's Joe Lunardi has Oregon as the No. 4 seed in San Jose, facing Stephen F. Austin in the first round (and potentially Dana Altman's old team, Creighton, in the second).

CBS Sports' Jerry Palm likes the Ducks a bit better, placing Oregon as a No. 3 seed. His bracket entails a first round match-up with Harvard, followed by the winner of a San Diego State-North Carolina tilt.

SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean agrees with Lunardi, placing Oregon as a No. 4, playing Akron in the first round, followed by the Ohio State-North Carolina winner.

All of the brackets place Oregon in San Jose for the first and second rounds, which is the closest geographical site they can get. A protected seed would be expected to, barring upsets, make it to the Sweet 16. The challenge for Oregon is to avoid regular season upsets without point guard Dominic Artis, who is out 3-6 weeks with a foot injury.

All three of the brackets have five Pac-12 teams in: Oregon, Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, and Colorado.
