All-Time Series

  • The Ducks are 29-49 against the Wildcats all-time, dating back to their first meeting in 1978-79. UO has taken the past three meetings, most recently besting Arizona in their only meeting this season, 85-58. Since both teams are considered Pac-12 regular season co-champs, that game decided the tiebreaker in the tournament, making the Ducks the one seed and the Wildcats the two.

“Of course we want to play against them after what happened last time,” said Lauri Markkanen, who averages 15.8 points and a team-leading 7.3 boards for Arizona. “So we want to get our revenge, and it was the same thing with UCLA. We’re excited about every game but especially those two teams. They beat us at home so it was a big deal playing against them and same thing with Oregon.”
