Oregon Ducks Men's Basketball Vs. Saint Louis Billikens NCAA Third Round: Open Thread

New, comments
Ezra Shaw

Oregon controlled the entire game in their first NCAA Tournament game against Oklahoma State, but now face a St. Louis team that has won 17 of its past 18 games, including three wins over Butler and two wins over VCU in that stretch. The matchup is one of two elite defenses--the Ducks come into the game ranked No. 17 nationally in defensive efficiency (90.5), while the Billikens rank No. 8, at 88.8. Given two fairly mediocre offenses, point are likely to be at a premium in this matchup.
