Oregon’s hopes for an NCAA Tournament berth were dashed after losing 75-56 to UCLA in the Pac-12 semifinals. However, the Ducks have been impressive in the NIT, having won 84-58 over UC Irvine and 68-54 over Central Florida. Even though seniors N’Faly Dante, Jermaine Couisnard, and Will Richardson, who are their top three scorers, are listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game, the Ducks have shown their depth in the tournament.
Oregon is ranked 38th in the country, with a 34th rank in adjusted offensive efficiency and an average of 71 points per game, and ranks 53rd in defensive efficiency, allowing an average of 66.7 points per game. Despite facing Wisconsin without their top three players, the Ducks have performed admirably with a limited roster in their first two NIT wins.
Wisconsin has won 3 of its last 5 games but will have to face Oregon, who has a big advantage according to the oddsmakers to qualify for the NIT semifinals.
