Major understatement.

Watching the Oregon - USC game it's hard to believe that Gonzaga is a better three point shooting team than Oregon, but they are.

GU is 26th in the country with a 39.5% three point shooting percentage as a team.

Oregon is 47th in the country with a 38.1%

Bradley leads the country, shooting 42.7% from beyond the arc.

We might be better over the entire season so far but Oregon is better right now at 3 pters over the last 4 games. I would hazzard to guess that Oregon is better at team FT% too. Our FT % is really bothering me. Why is this happening now? Thank God for DRav's FT%. We likely would not be here right now. His free throws have helped ice 3 of the last 4 games for us

Oregon will last as long in this tournament as their 3 pointers are dropping. If they are even a bit off against a team with quality post players, they're done. But if they get the right matchups, and continue to sizzle from beyond the arc, they could go deep.

USC had some of the poorest shot selection I've seen all season. Granted Oregon put them in a difficult position dropping all those threes, but USC looked like they were playing without a coach tonight.

... well you all know the rest of that. UO could go far or could wash out in the first round against some mid-major with good perimiter D and an inside banger. Looked good today, though. They're a lot hotter than we are from the 3 right now, but that might change in the tourney. Hopefully the team comes out rested and with fresh legs and out shooting percentages go through the roof (and our ft% go back to where they belong).

....does that happen, especially in a championship game? Bryce Tayler, from Encino Oregon, was perfect;11 for 11 from the field, 7 for 7 from behind the arc and 3 for 3 from the charity stripe! He was certainly Oregon's reason for winning dontcha think?
