Free March Madness Picks Oregon Ducks VS Oregon State Beavers
A win for the Oregon Ducks will give them with a 20-win season in back-to-back campaigns for only the third time in school history. Under Howard Hobson, the Ducks were able to produce four consecutive 20-vicotry seasons in the late 1930s and had two straight 20-win seasons under Ernie Kent (2001 - 02, 2002-03).
But a more important thing to the second-year coach Dana Altman is to see his team earn one of the four first-round byes for the Pac-12 tournament. Oregon State Beavers, which has lost four straight games, beat the Ducks 76-71 in January.
