Oregon 27-7 7-3 75.9 65.6 .450 .384 .755
Winthrop 29-4 10-0 75.3 61.0 .480 .364 .625
The Ducks wanted a faster-paced game than they had against Miami (Ohio), and they should get it from Winthrop. With all that offense, which team can slow the other's transition will probably make all the difference in the outcome.
