In the final AP Top 25 poll of the year before we find out what Oregon’s path in the NCAA tournament will look like, the Ducks check in at No. 5 in the nation, theoretically just outside of a No. 1 seed.
The top four teams in the nation remain unchanged from last week with Kansas at No. 1, Villanova at No. 2, UCLA at No. 3 and Gonzaga at No. 4.
Much of the top 10 looks similar from last week, with the biggest change among those teams only being a couple spots.
With Arizona holding their spot at No. 7, the Pac-12 finishes the regular season with three teams in the top 10. However, as it has been for much of the year, those are the only ranked teams in the conference. USC is still the only other Pac-12 school receiving votes.
The Pac-12 Tournament begins on Wednesday in Las Vegas. Oregon will play Thursday at Noon PT, facing the winner of Wednesday’s Arizona State/Stanford game. If they win that game, they'll face either Cal, Oregon State or Utah in the semifinals. And if they win that, they'll likely face either UCLA or Arizona in the finals. A tournament win over UCLA in the finals could propel the Ducks into a No. 1 seed.
