Can Rhode Island cover against Oregon? NCAA Predictions 3/19/17
Dorsey was the star for the Ducks with 27 points on 9-for-10 shooting from the field including 4-for-5 from three point land. Dillon Brooks added 19 points on 7-of-20 shooting, and he was 2-of-6 from beyond the arc.
OR came out in the second half and continued to struggle with Rhode Island's defensive toughness, but it was Oregon's defense in the last 10 minutes of the game that changed the complexion of the contest. Dorsey and the Ducks will try to return to the Elite Eight as they face the Michigan Wolverines.
Rhode Island led by as many as 11, but the Ducks kept it close most of the game before turning it on with less than five minutes left in regulation, highlighted by Tyler Dorsey hitting two clutch deep shots in the game's final two minutes.
It wasn't another Dillon Brooks buzzer-beater, but Sunday night had to feel familiar, as OR has grown accustomed to late-game escape acts with two of the nation's best shot makers.
However, it will have to defend the perimeter like it did against Rhode Island, who shot only 27.3 percent from three (6-of-22).
Then, with 38.4 seconds left, Dorsey did it again. Rhode Island responded with a mini-surge of its own, but Dorsey responded, first with a game-tying 3-pointer after a pair of Jordan Bell offensive rebounds and then with his ice-cold game victor. With the Rams shooting a scorching 59.4 percent from the field in the first half, to go along with 10 turnovers for the Ducks, it was easy to see why OR found itself in such a deficit.
OR committed 14 turnovers and failed to secure key defensive rebounds playing again without injured big man Chris Boucher, who tore the ACL in his left knee during the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals.
Rhode Island entered the Round of 32 having won nine games in a row, vaulting from the bubble to safely into the field as the Atlantic 10 tournament champion. "We overcame stuff like this all year", Bell said. Stanford Robinson outscored the Ducks 9-8 by himself over that stretch. Dorsey might not have been well known before Sunday, but now he'll be famous thanks to that epic game-winner. Among starters, Kuran Iverson scored nine, Jared Terrell 15 and E.C. Matthews 13.
The Ducks also won't get as many open looks as they have through the first two rounds.
"We weren't getting him the ball enough for a period in the season, and that was my fault, " Altman said.
"Like Coach always says, keep my focus first on defense and rebounding and the offense, let it come, " Dorsey said. "It's very hard to describe", he said.
For the game OR shot 48.1 percent from the field on 25-of-52 shooting including seven 3-point shots and were 18-of-27 in free throw shooting.
