NCAA Profile: Oregon Ducks

Are these Ducks quacking their way to a Final Four?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Team: Oregon Ducks

Conference: Pac 12

Coach: Dana Altman

Record: 28-6 (14-4 conference)

KenPom Rank: 9

Good Wins: Baylor, USC, Utah (twice), Arizona (twice)

Impact Players: Dillion Brooks leads them in scoring, but he's followed closely by Elgin Cook and Tyler Dorsey. Chris Boucher averages 12 points per game and leads the Ducks on the boards with just under eight rebounds per game while being second in the nation with 3.1 blocks per game.

How did they get in?: They blew through Utah in Pac 12 championship to punch their ticket in the NCAA Tournament, although there wasn't any doubt whatsoever about their hopes before then. Oregon has been the toast of the Pac 12 for much of the season.

How far can this team go in the NCAA Tournament?: Maybe one of the most overlooked teams in the nation, Oregon may be one of the Final Four frontrunners heading into next week. They've proven that they can play with and beat anyone in the Pac 12, now it's time for the Ducks to prove themselves on a national scale.

Last time in the NCAA Tournament: 2015, a loss to Wisconsin booted them in the Round of 32.
