Oregon Ducks prospects
The Ducks are peaking at the right time. They started off slow because they were without starting point guard Will Richardson, but after he returned they’ve taken it to a new level. Altman teams always seem to start playing their best ball right about now, and it was only a few years ago that he took Oregon to the Final Four. They have five guys averaging at least 10.4 points per game, and all five of them shoot at least 36 percent from three. That’s incredibly hard to defend. Their defense was the weak spot, but even that has improved since Richardson returned. They’re one of my favorite sleeper teams this March.Last updated: Fri 19th March 2021
