SAN JOSE, Calif. – They didn’t feel disrespected or under-seeded. In fact, Oregon didn’t think twice about being given a 12 seed in the NCAA tournament.

They just went out and played.

Behind a monster performance in the paint from Arsalan Kazemi and a backcourt that resembled the one that powered the team to into the top 10 earlier this season, Oregon moved past No. 5 Oklahoma State 68-55 Thursday afternoon at HP Pavilion in their 2nd round NCAA tournament matchup.


Five of the eight Pac-12 teams finished the regular season in the nation's top 25.
