Facing the BYU Cougars in round two, the Oregon Ducks are looking to build on their hot streak and return to the Sweet 16 for the second season in a row. The Ducks are a No. 7 seed, but can they get back to the quarterfinals?
Lately the center has struggled, but he’s the defensive specialist on a team that plays next-to-none. If Richard Amardi can stay out of foul trouble, he could be one of the worst nightmares on defense.
The lethal shooter to coach Dana Altman’s offense, Jason Calliste provides a spark off the bench with his 50 percent shooting from beyond the arc and scoring 12 points per game.
The fifth-year senior Mike Moser provides low-post offense that allows the Ducks to slow down the pace if need be. Moser averages a near double-double at 13 and eight.
The best scorer on the team is Joseph Young. In a three-guard offense, Young is the slasher who gets to the line where he shoots an impressive 88 percent.
Johnathan Loyd is the point guard on a fast-paced offense. He might not have the best stats, but he’s the most important building the tempo in every game.
