The Ducks split their regular season series with the Sun Devils, but they will go into the game with a lot of confidence because they took the last meeting in a blowout.
Oregon is an average offensive team, scoring 70.6 points per game. The team is shooting 44.8 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range.

The Ducks have done well defensively, holding opponents to 63.4 points per game, which is 20th in the country. They held their last four opponents to 56.7 points per game and will need to keep playing good defense to pull off the upset over the Huskies.

The Huskies won the Pac -12 regular season title and will try to double up with the tournament title but they will be facing an opponent that won’t be intimidated. They will be going for their third win in a row and fifth win in their last six games when they face the Ducks on Saturday.
