We won't play another team as tough as L'ville on the defensive end. That being said, Oregon can really fill it up so this is still a tough match up.

Like our first match up.. Michigan can "fill it up" as well if need be. Anyway, with 16 teams left all match ups have the potential to be a tough one.

We have the 3rd most efficient offense left in the tournament. Only behind UNC and UCLA. We definitely know we can fill it up, but Oregon's defense is better than Ok State's. OK State's defensive efficiency was 133rd. That had to be one of the worst in the tourney. Oregon is rated 22nd. The good news is that Boucher being out means they no longer have a rim protector. Should be able to score in the paint just like we did against L'ville.

This team isn't even remotely close to being as talented as the 2013 team.

I agree. I was just saying our shooting wasn't good. Inside, yes, we were very good.

35% compared to 38% on the season. Really it was just the volume that was way off

This team isnt as talented as the 2013 team true. But the other 15 teams left arent either. there is no dominate team. Anyone can beat anyone at this point. I think we match up well with Oregon because they lost their big man and now just try to be more athletic than the other team. We are just as athletic and we have senior leadership. The biggest difference I have seen is we arent living and dying by the 3 as much. Irvin is willing to drive and take the 2 where as in the past he wasnt like that.

I don't remember the 2013 Championship.

I remember the 1989 Championship.

Too bad I don't remember the 2013 Championship; that would have been a cool thing to know about.

Tough crowd.....Obviously I meant to say championship game but I stand by what I said. We're gonna take Oregon to the cleaners. I don't think we would beat Kansas and Purdue is gonna be more than ready for us, so we will see what happens.
