HP Pavilion at San Jose, San Jose, CA
NCAA Mens Tournament
Around Champ Week
MVP: Arsalan Kazemi, who transferred from Rice during the offseason, finished with 11 points, 17 rebounds, two steals and two assists. Six of his boards were offensive rebounds. E.J. Singler, the brother of former Duke star Kyle Singler, is averaging 11.6 PPG for the Ducks.
X factor: Marcus Smart means so much for the Pokes. The first-year star, however, played like a veteran and a freshman (14 points, eight rebounds, four assists, five steals, five turnovers, 5-for-13) throughout the loss.
That was proof: Many suspected that Oregon had been improperly seeded by the selection committee. The Ducks' 13-point win over 5-seed Oklahoma State suggests that they were right..
