The Oregon Ducks take on the USC Trojans tonight in the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals. Tipoff begins at 8:30 p.m. PST with a telecast on FS1.
Here is a link to the game preview plus a recap of Oregon's win over Utah on Thursday.
Both Oregon and USC went down to the wire in the two meetings during the regular season. The Ducks hope to breakthrough tonight and advance to the Pac-12 Tournament Championship. USC took both contests after Oregon could not find a way to close out the games.
Kenny Wooten has been the standout so far for the Ducks. Without his blocks at the end, the Ducks would be out of the conference tournament.
Oregon is in must-win mode as winning the tournament secures a spot in the NCAA Tournament. An appearance in the championship game may not be enough to convince the selection committee.
Can the Ducks muster enough offense and physicality against the Trojans tonight? How much is left in the tank for Ducks, playing for a third-straight night? Who must step up to power the Ducks into the championship game?
The game thread is now open. Please be respectful.
