Oregon Ducks Dillon Brooks Named Erving Award Finalist

Alyssa BaileyMar 10, 2017

Not ready to end its season just yet, the team found a new gear in the additional five-minute period, outscoring the tournament's nine-seed 17-7 to lock up a 98-88 victory.

The Pac-12 tournament will be held in Las Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena beginning on Wednesday, running through Saturday.

Oleka went off in the Pac-12 Tourney opener on Wednesday, dropping a career-high 27 points while grabbing 13 boards to lead the Sun Devils to victory over Stanford.

The Pac-12 tournament scores could end up dictating how many schools advance from the conference tournament to the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

The Utah Utes locked up the conference's fourth seed with a 20-10 SU and 14-13-1 ATS record.

Prajapati was sacked by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav a year ago but was later reinstated in the council of ministers. Further, the court directed that if Prajapati is arrested, he can approach a concerned court for seeking bail.

"You won't face hostile crowds". "When we do those, we blow out teams".

"If you talk to him, he doesn't even talk about next level or anything", Steve Alford said. Dillon Brooks led all scorers with 25, Jordan Bell finished with a double-double, and Bell and Boucher also combined to block seven shots in the 21-point win. "It was fun having our fans out there previous year so playing on the West Coast will be way better". We don't see that as particularly likely (if anything, at this juncture, it seems more likely that Gonzaga will be dropped to a 2 seed in the West if one of those three Pac-12 teams wins the Pac-12 Tournament in emphatic fashion), but it's a possibility. We say "more than likely" because there's a non-zero chance that if Oregon, Arizona, or UCLA wins out and Gonzaga wins its conference tournament, both the Pac-12 Tournament victor and Gonzaga could earn 1 seeds, with Gonzaga staying West and the Pac-12 victor being shipped out, which would allow another Pac-12 team to stay West to pair with Gonzaga.

The Ducks enter Thursday's contest riding a six-game winning streak and ranked as the No. 5 team in the nation. "I thought we did that, but just couldn't really get in a rhythm offensively". We are going to try and tighten some things up.

"Last year was a bummer", Brooks said.

Despite recent success in the regular season, including an NCAA Tournament appearance, the ASU men's basketball team has struggled in the Pac-12 Tournament in recent history, losing its last four games. "We had a much better flow than we have in the past few weeks and we're just looking to bring it again tomorrow against Utah".

Stanford would take advantage of ASU's offensive dry spell as it accounted for the final three baskets of regulation - the last of which by Michael Humphrey as the shot clock buzzer went off with four seconds remaining - to tie the game at 81-81 and force overtime. OR beat ASU 71-70 in the teams' lone regular-season meeting February 2.

Two of those 3s were buzzer-beating, game-winning shots in victories over UCLA and California that helped OR repeat as regular-season champions. ASU made all five of its field goal attempts and four of five free throws to overwhelm Stanford, sending the Cardinal packing.

Or the committee could decide that UCLA, with two wins over both Arizona and OR, plus a victory at Kentucky, is more deserving than Gonzaga despite the disparity in non-conference SOS.

While Cal did a good job of knocking down shots when they needed to, the offense was still a bit stagnant and tentative at times.

Six players are scoring at least 9.3 points per game for Arizona State, they are: Torian Graham (18.2), Tra Holder (16.7), Shannon Evans II (15.2), Oleka (12.7), Sam Cunliffe (9.5) and Kodi Justice (9.3). The Cats stepped up to the challenge and played one of their best games of the year. If Travis plays well, Stanford will win in a close battle, and if he does not, Stanford might leave Vegas early. "So even though it was overtime I trusted that we were going to get it done, and I know that they would find another gear". After ASU raced out to a 50-42 lead by halftime, it was Stanford's turn to put up big numbers in the second half. That leaves the winners of the two night games in the first round to play Arizona and UCLA on Day 2.
