We are just over a month away from the start of March Madness, and Oregon is in a good spot. The Ducks recently climbed to No. 11 in the AP top 25 this week and show no signs of slowing down.
The hype surrounding the Ducks kept rolling on on Tuesday as Seth Greenberg, a college basketball analyst for ESPN, picked Oregon to reach the Final Four. Greenberg also predicted that Maryland, Oklahoma and Michigan State would join the Ducks in Houston.
Here was head coach Dana Altman's reaction at practice today when asked about the prediction.

Oregon seems to be clicking at the right time, and the country is taking note. The Ducks have won six straight games and nine of their last ten. The latest bracket predictions from USA Today and SB Nation both have the Ducks as a No. 2 seed in the Spokane region facing Montana. Joe Lunardi of ESPN has Oregon as a No. 4 seed in Spokane facing Chattanooga.
