In one of the higher scoring games of the day, No. 8 Oregon knocked off No. 9 Oklahoma State, 79-73, with elite play from Joseph Young.

The first half was a sloppy affair, with five turnovers coming in the first 3 minutes of the game, though the great shooters on both teams quickly got to work. Midway into the half, there was a three minute scoring drought as neither team scored for three minutes and forty-three seconds, the longest one of the day in all games. Young drew a foul with two seconds left, and made two free throws to put Oregon up four. The same happened at the end of the game, with Young pushing the lead to 6.

Impact Player

Young absolutely took over; in fact he ended the game with 27 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, and a steal. Included in those 27 points were several dunks and amazing down court shots.

Strange, Yet True

If San Diego State wins tonight, every 8 seed will have won their matchups.

Up Next

Oregon will face the winner of the No. 1 Wisconsin vs the N. 16 Coastal Carolina game in the Round of 32. Oklahoma State’s season ends at 18-14, in the Round of 64.
