Final Thoughts: The game was played in the 60's and 70's, and Oregon wins the game. The Ducks got great games out of Tyler Dorsey and Jordan Bell. Bell was the inside presence Oregon needed to defeated Kansas.
As for Kansas, disappointing loss. Jackson was in foul trouble early. Mason, Graham, and Jackson were not hitting on all cylinders.
Oregon will play the winner of North Carolina and Kentucky, Next Saturday.
