How sweet it is!  The #25 Oregon Ducks are headed to the “Sweet 16” playing against #1 seed Louisville on Friday.

 

Ducks radio announcer Jerry Allen says it's a dream come true for all Ducks fans; and he's not surprised that the Ducks won, but how they won is another matter.

 

"Oklahoma State, a very athletic team. I thought probably more athletic than Oregon. Jumpers, athletes, very good, had a great season. But Oregon handled them so well, they just kind of took the game to them and that's physical, and they played a better mental game. St. Louis was a veteran team. They had pretty much put defensive pressure on everybody they played; forced turnovers; pretty much owned their opponents and Oregon turned it on them.  It wasn't surprising that Oregon was able to win those games; I thinks it was as easily as they won those games."

 

Allen says Coach Dana Altman is a great teacher, and he's sure that he will take the next few days to teach the team about Louisville.

 

"Dana Altman is the Head Coach and one of the best teacher's I've been around, and he really teaches these guys what they need to be prepared for an opponent. I think that's why they were so ready for the first round of the NCAA tournament."

 

Allen says the team works together very well to get the job done; but the fact that they were seeded so low really got the team fired up to prove the selection committee missed the mark.

 

1110 KBND will begin coverage of the game this Friday beginning at 3:30 p.m.
