Arizona Has Revenge On Their Mind In Pac-12 Finals

In their lone meeting during the regular season, the Oregon Ducks throttled the Arizona Wildcats. Oregon simply couldn’t miss with the Ducks shooting 65.2 percent from the floor and 64 percent from beyond the arc on their way to an 85-58 beating of Arizona in Eugene. That continued the trend of Oregon cashing tickets against Arizona with the Ducks going 8-3 ATS in the past 11 against the Wildcats.

SHARK BITES
  • Oregon is 15-4-1 ATS in their past 20 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of Oregon’s past 6 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of the past 6 meetings between Oregon and Arizona.

I don’t think anyone can imagine Oregon putting on a shooting performance like their last outing against Arizona, especially when you consider the Wildcats are one of the best teams in the nation at defending the three. Since that loss to Oregon, Arizona has held opponents to a paltry 29.7 percent from deep with no team hitting the 40 percent mark in a game. Finnish forward Lauri Markkanen has been the brightest star of the Pac-12 tournament, as he has averaged 24.5 points while shooting while shooting 47 percent from deep.

We all know how good Oregon can be on the offensive end with Dillon Brooks and Tyler Dorsey two of the better shooters in the Pac-12, but not enough attention is paid to the team's defense. The Ducks are holding the opposition to a mere 64.8 ppg and a 39.9 shooting percentage. Defensive stalwart Jordan Bell had a marquee performance in the semis against Cal with the forward notching 15 rebounds and five blocks.
