NCAA Basketball: Oregon at Oregon State Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Can the Oregon Ducks find their way to the Final Four without Chris Boucher?

It’ll be a challenge. Oregon has one of the easier brackets in the Midwest Region, but their path is far from given without one of their critical lynchpins.

Oregon starts out their path in Sacramento as a three seed on Friday, where they face Iona. They will then face the winner of Creighton and Rhode Island on Sunday for the right to advance to the Sweet 16 in Kansas City.

Oregon will then likely face one of Michigan, Oklahoma State and Louisville in the Sweet 16. All good teams, but fairly beatable. Then the likely draw is Kansas at the top of the bracket, or Miami, Iowa State or Purdue. This is a good bracket for the Ducks to do some damage.

Can the Ducks make it to the Final Four? They might need some upsets along the way to fall their way, but if they do the path is wide open.
