NCAA Basketball: Oregon at Stanford Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

After sweeping the mountain schools on the road for the first time in history and setting themselves up for an NCAA Tournament berth, the margin for error is slim-to-none for the Ducks. On December 12th, Stanford defeated Oregon 72-69 in Palo Alto in a very early conference game that dropped Oregon to 0-2 in the Pac-12. Currently, the Ducks are 8-3 in conference and up to No. 2 in the Pac-12 standings.

Stanford is 7-6 in conference and in the middle of the pack. Although the Cardinal are 10-3 at home, they are only 2-5 on the road. Stanford was defeated 79-70 on Tuesday by #12 UCLA. With Oregon one of the hottest teams in the country and playing at home, this adds up to a victory for the Ducks on paper. However, Oregon struggled to put away an inferior Utah team on Saturday so nothing is a given and hopefully the Ducks show up ready to go for the jugular.
