Ranked 16th in the nation and boasting a 16-2 record, the Oregon men’s basketball team have been projected as a five seed in Joe Lunardi’s latest NCAA tournament Bracketology. The Ducks have been rising recently in Lunardi’s weekly projected rankings. Last week Oregon was projected as a seven seed and they were projected as a ten seed the week before that.
At 9-1, the University of Oregon Ducks are atop the ‘others receiving votes’ category for the second straight week, barely missing being ranked in the latest AP poll. Many are surprised they didn’t jump into the polls this week.
