Confident URI Can Beat Oregon

Rams Hoping to Upset the Ducks Sunday Night in Sacramento

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Oregon is a slight favorite, as the Ducks are getting odds of -5.5 points against Rhode Island.

Dorsey finished with a game-high 27 points, his fifth game in a row with at least 20.

OR now travels to Kansas City for the next round and will face MI on Thursday. As the lead gets exchanged back and forth throughout the second half, OR will pull away in the closing moments to advance to the Elite Eight.

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.

The Rams took it right down to the wire, but a three from Tyler Dorsey in the waning moments was the death knell for Rhode Island's season.

Once the game ended and OR had narrowly advanced with a hard-fought NCAA Tournament win, Tyler Dorsey considered his two missed free throws with 3:36 left and how there might have been no celebrations at all.

They kept up the pace, attacking the OR defense and leading by as much as 11 points with more than 13 minutes left in the game. The Ducks won the battle on the glass (35-28), 15 coming on the offensive end. First, he hit the three pointer to tie the game.

The Rams went into halftime with a 46-38 lead, thanks to a strong shooting half.

OR settled down, playing aggressive defensively with a full-court man defense and looking for traps whenever possible. "We were very fortunate today with our turnovers to get that done". Stanford Robinson leads in steals with 1.2 per game. But Dorsey is one of the tournament's hottest players and Brooks is one of its best players, giving OR a duo as capable of making big shots with the game on the line as anybody left in the bracket. OR was taking care of business against a Rhode Island squad that had only faced one team of Oregon's caliber all season.

"An wonderful season for us, conference champions, the run we've been on, the heart we showed today and the high level of play", Hurley said. The junior guard had gone just 2 of 9 over his two previous games, but shot 10 for 12 on his biggest stage yet. The Ducks were starting to feel a little more comfortable after a Jordan Bell lay-up put the team up 8 with 6:36 remaining in the first half.

"Like Coach always says, keep my focus first on defense and rebounding and the offense, let it come, " Dorsey said. Bobby Hurley wasn't in the stands as he had to return to host recruits at Arizona State, but coaching father Bob watched proudly.

"We feel very fortunate to be moving on and we know how hard MI will be on Thursday".
