2013 NCAA Tournament Video Preview: Saint Louis vs. Oregon and Marquette vs. Butler
No. 4 Saint Louis vs. No. 12 Oregon
The Oregon Ducks won their first NCAA Tournament game since 2007 on Thursday afternoon, cruising to an easy victory over No. 5 Oklahoma State. Oregon was virtually snubbed with their seeding as the Pac-12 Tournament chances certainly warranted better than a 12 seed. Either way, the Ducks sent the committee and the rest of the field a message with their second round victory. On the flip side of this match-up, Saint Louis built up a big lead and never looked back against No. 13 New Mexico State.
The Billikens have quickly become the favorite in this sub region, so you know that Saint Louis will have the higher expectations in this contest. Oregon however, is better than their seeding indicates, so don’t think that the No. 12 Ducks can’t advance to Indianapolis.
No. 3 Marquette vs. No. 6 Butler
Marquette guard Vander Blue drove left and scored late with 1.0 seconds to play, stunning a Davidson team that appeared to have locked up a monumental second round upset. The Wildcats collapsed down the stretch and the Golden Eagles survived and advanced into the third round. Marquette will take on Butler on Saturday evening, as the Bulldogs countered a 20-2 Bucknell run with one of their own to advance past the Bison and into the Round of 32.
This game serves as a rematch from earlier in the season when Butler defeated Marquette in the opening round of the Maui Invitational. You may remember that contest from back in November because it’s one of the biggest highlights of this college basketball season. Marquette will be seeking revenge on Butler after Rotnei Clarke shocked them with a fall away, game-winning buzzer beater earlier in the year.
