The Oregon Ducks are heading back to the Sweet 16 for the second straight year as Tyler Dorsey's three-pointer with 38 seconds left sent the Ducks past Rhode Island 75-72 on Sunday.

MI owns a 4-0 record in the all-time series against OR and last faced the Ducks in 2014. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 140 points.

Rhode Island isn't lacking in confidence coming into today's game. They now sit at 25-9 on the season while putting up a record of 19-14 against the spread.

On the season, OR basketball is averaging 79.1 points, 36.4 rebounds and 16.4 assists per game. Stanford Robinson led Rhone Island with 21.

He says, "We wanted to show the NCAA that we're still here". "It doesn't matter what our belief system is personally. The NCAA does not host championship events in MS due to the prominence of the Confederate flag in the MS state flag.

Despite being without Chris Boucher for the tournament due to a knee injury, OR still went out and handled its business against Iona on Friday. To get to the magical 10th win in a row, Rhode Island is going to need their star, E.C. Matthews to step up surely.

The Oregon Ducks (30-5) are coming from a 93-77 win over Iona in which Tyle Dorsey scored 24 points in 9-for-13 shooting from the field and 4-for-6 from the free throw line. Defensively, Oregon is yielding 65.0 points per game against the opposing teams. The pointspread outcome in that game came down to the final possession despite the fact that the Ducks shot 56% from the floor and won the rebounding battle by 14.

Of course, OR isn't about to roll over for Rhode Island in this matchup. As long as the Rams keep their defensive intensity, they can pull of the upset.
