Oregon 82-68 win propels the Ducks to the Elite-8.

Southern California native Tyler Dorsey played a pivitol role in Oregon's 82-68 win over Duke in the Sweet-16 game on Thursday evening. Dorsey scored seven points but hit some timely 3-point shots as well has being part of a tenacious defense that never let Duke get closer than six points in the second half of the game.

Tyler Dorsey had a stong outing along with his teammates, though he did not score in double-figures as he usually does, he hit a critical 3-pointer at the 6:10 mark of the second half to make the score 68-54 that seemed to take the energy out of Duke for which they were unable to recover.

Dorsey also four rebounds and four assists in the game. Oregon out rebounded Duke 42-32 and had an edge in assists 22-12. The 22 assist by the Ducks established a new school record.

Oregon now will prepare for Oklahoma on Saturday in the Elite-8 game. No Dana Altman team has ever made it to the Elite-8, but the way the Ducks are playing now, help in part of Dorsey, should make the contest one of the best games of the season.

The start time for the Oregon Oklahoma game iw 3:09 Pacific.
