The Oregon Ducks had a magical regular season. Can they wrap it up with a run to the Final Four?

Oregon will start their journey as a 1 seed and play in the West Region against the winner of 16 seeds Holy Cross vs. Southern. If they win, the Ducks will play St. Joseph's or Cincinnati in the Round of 32. If Oregon gets to the second weekend, they'll be in the Anaheim region trying to get to the Final Four.

Oregon won both the Pac-12 regular season and Pac-12 tournament in convincing fashion. The Ducks finished their regular season 28-6 and wiped the floor with the best of the conference, losing only once to Arizona, Utah and Cal. Oregon swept second place Utah with three wins, including an absolute annihilation in the Pac-12 tournament final. Oregon also landed big wins against Baylor and Valparaiso and were the only team to go 2-0 against Arizona this season.

The Ducks could break a long drought of Pac-12 teams not making the Final Four, and now that they're situated in the West region, they'll have great odds to capture the crown.
