If you have any work to do today, you'd better get it done before noon. Oregon plays BYU at 12:10 p.m. in NCAA Tournament action. Stick with ATQ throughout the day for complete coverage and to chat about the game.
- The big news yesterday was about the future of the basketball program, as 5-star guard JaQuan Lyle committed to the Ducks. Lyle, ranked by 24/7 as the No. 22 overall player in the class of 2014, joins an Oregon recruiting class that already includes three 4* and three 3* players. Its a loaded group, and may well be Oregon's best class ever.
- Of course, there is also the matter of taking care of business today. Oregon-BYU should be an up and down affair. There are plenty of storylines for the Ducks this NCAA Tournament: Elgin Cook returning home to Milwaukee, Richard Amardi hoping to keep his career going just a bit longer, Jason Calliste continuing his role as the hero that saved Oregon's season. Rob Moseley checks in from Milwaukee.
- Kevin Gemmell's piece is about some kid named Mariota. Wonder if he's any good?
Tweet of the Day
I'm embedding my own Tweet, just hoping its a sign of things to come:

That's all I've got this morning. Enjoy the hot tournament action. GO DUCKS!
