The Oregon Ducks were considered a title contender until they lost their center Chris Bouche with a torn ACL in a game he played against the Cal Bears last Friday. The Bears tried to win those three games last week against Oregon State, Utah and Oregon. They lost to Oregon and now go home to face Bakersfield at Haas Pavilion on Tuesday night. The Bears came up short and Oregon is on their way to the NCAA Tournament.

There’s so much information now on how these teams are chosen there aren’t too many surprises on selection day. I’m pretty sure Cal will be at the selection party they probably could see the writing on the wall. The Bears do enter the NIT as the number one seed they will have the opportunity to host three games at Haas prior to going to the next round which is in New York if they can win.
