2017 NCAA Tournament Oregon vs. Michigan game preview
Michigan will look to continue its impressive winning streak when facing Oregon to begin the Sweet 16 portion of the Midwest Region bracket. The Wolverines posted narrow victories over Oklahoma State (one point) and Louisville (four) to advance to Kansas City. Two more wins will place Michigan in the Final Four.
Michigan is enjoying a seven-game winning streak, a run that began with a victory over Nebraska on March 5. The Wolverines have learned to win close throughout the stretch. Including the victories over Oklahoma State and Louisville, Michigan has won four games by seven points or fewer.
Oregon will be a tough out, though. The Ducks have won 10 of their past 11 games, the lone loss in the stretch being an 83-80 defeat to Arizona in the Pac-12 Tournament on March 11.
Oregon beat Iona by 16 points and Rhode Island by three to advance to the Sweet 16. The Ducks are no stranger to reaching this round. Oregon appeared in a regional final last year before losing.
This is the fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance for the Ducks under coach Dana Altman. A win over Michigan would mark another fine achievement for the program under the veteran leader.
This should be a close, entertaining regional semifinal. It would be a surprise if either team built a significant lead late in this contest. Don’t be surprised if Michigan continues its momentum, though.
