THE BOTTOM LINE

RECORD LAST 10 PPG OPPG FG PCT. 3-PT PCT. FT PCT.

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.
