The Oregon Ducks confirmed what many of us knew and that is that the Duke Blue Devils are not Elite. The 4-seed Blue Devils stood no chance against the Ducks in an 82-68 beat down and at times it didn’t even look that close. Brandon Ingram tried his hardest to keep Duke in the game, but his 24 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block weren’t quite enough.
Grayson Allen had 15 points, three assists and six rebounds while Luke Kennard kicked in 13 points and 11 boards. Oregon had five different players in double figure scoring and that allowed them to stay out in front and keep the win. Oregon’s athleticism and ability to switch on defense proved to be the difference in the game as they will meet No. 2 Oklahoma on Saturday.
