Oregon Ducks Preview
Oregon went 21-15 last season, with a 12-8 record in Pac-12 play. The Ducks ended their campaign with a loss to Wisconsin in the quarterfinals of the NIT, and they’ll be looking to return to the Dance for the first time in three years.
Oregon scored 70.6 points per game, on 48% shooting, while allowing 66.3 ppg during the 2022-23 season. The loss of longtime guard Will Richardson may be felt, but the Ducks do have three returning starters in big man N’Faly Dante, and guards Jermaine Cousinard and Keeshawn Barthelemy. The landing of transfer guard Kario Oquendo could pay dividends quickly as well, as he will be facing his former school here in his Ducks debut.
Georgia Bulldogs Preview
Georgia went 16-16 last season, with a 6-12 record in SEC play. The Bulldogs season ended with a loss to LSU in the first round of the conference tournament, and they’ll be aiming to return to the field of 64 for the first time in nine years.
Georgia scored 68.5 points per game, on 43% shooting, while allowing 71.5 ppg. The Bulldogs will have to replace a lot of production after losing their three leading scorers from last year’s squad, but they do have transfer portal landings Matthew-Alexander Moncrieffe and Russel Tchewa coming in to beef up the frontcourt. Justin Hill is the returning leading scorer at 8.6 ppg.

Corey’s Free Pick
Oregon really underwhelmed during the 2022-23 season, but they’ve got a chance to open things strong here in Vegas against a Georgia team looking to figure themselves out. The Ducks have played in Vegas in each of the past six seasons, while the Bulldogs haven’t played here since Tom Crean was on the sidelines. Let’s trust Oregon’s returning continuity here, and back them for this Hall of Fame series matchup.
