Oregon MBB Preview & Gamer vs Oregon State

March 12, 2020

Oregon takes on Oregon State at noon Thursday. The game is on the Pac-12 Networks.

Oregon is 24-7 overall and finished 13-5 in conference play. The Ducks are on a four-game winning streak, and they’re 2-2 against teams at neutral sites.

Oregon State is 18-13 overall, and the Beavs were 7-11 in conference to tie for eighth. They’re on a three-game winning streak and are 3-1 at neutral sites.

Oregon got a bye in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament. The Ducks now have to play a Beaver team that squeaked by Utah 71-69 in its opener.

After Wednesday's coronavirus-related decree, the game will be played in a T-Mobile Arena devoid of spectators.

These teams split in the regular season, with the Beavers winning in Corvallis 63-53 and  Oregon getting revenge by knocking off the Beavers 69-54 in late February.

In that last matchup, Payton Pritchard led all scorers with 23 points. Will Richardson and Anthony Mathis both had nice games, combining for 28 points.

Oregon will be well-rested for this game after having the last four days off. Meanwhile, Oregon State finished a really tough and physical matchup less than 24 hours ago.

Oregon is still being projected as a 4 seed in the NCAA tournament. If Oregon is able to string together three wins and add the Pac-12 Tournament championship to its register season title, the Ducks could be end up on the 3 line.

If Oregon is able to win Thursday, the Ducks will take on the winner of the Arizona-USC game, which is scheduled to tip off after the conclusion of the Oregon contest. That semifinal would take place Friday at 6 p.m.

I’ll be running the live gamer for you guys.
