What To Know About USC

Known for his Dunk City Florida Gulf Coast team in 2013, Andy Enfield has had a breakthrough at USC this season thanks to freshman Evan Mobley. Mobley is scoring 16.1 with 8.6 rebounds per game while blocking 2.9 shots and shooting 58.2% from the field.

The Trojans rank 16th in the nation, according to KenPom, and are 14th in adjusted defensive efficiency. Having finished in a virtual tie atop the Pac-12 in the regular season, USC will go as far as Mobley takes it in March Madness.

This team has elite size, which enables them to dominate on the offensive boards and in defense at the rim. However, their free throw shooting is very troublesome at 64.7% ((327th) — Matt Trebby

What To Know About Oregon

Prior to their loss to rival Oregon State in the Pac -12 tournament, the Ducks were playing outstanding basketball. Some of their season-long metrics are a bit depressed as a result of injuries, but the on-court product once they got all of their pieces back looked very promising. That’s especially true on the offensive end, where Oregon ranks in the 88th percentile nationally in terms of points per possession, per Synergy.

Oregon starts five upper-classmen who are all efficient on that end of the floor. That said, the defense is nowhere close to the level of the offense, especially in the interior, where they really miss the length of N’Faly Dante, who is out for the year.

The Ducks are very vulnerable against elite post players. But this is still a Dana Altman-led team. That means they will be tough to prepare for in a tournament setting. Altman will press a bunch and switch between man and zone looks in the half court. — Stuckey
