Spokane: Finally, an upset

By Lindsay Schnell - March 16, 2007

This is the best part, when all the winning players come over to point at their fans and thank them for coming. They also take the opportunity to ham it up for the TV cameras. Final was 74-64.

Oregon and Miami are taking the floor now. Here's what you need to know about each team: Miami (Ohio) won their conf. tourney on an unbelievable bank 3, so you know they're riding high on emotion.

Oregon is playing its best basketball of the season and absolutely dominated the Pac-10 tourney. Everyone is finally healthy for the Ducks and they're stoked to be back in the NCAA tourney with a shot a going pretty deep. They want to equal or outdo the last Oregon team to go deep, back when the Lukes (Ridnour and Jackson, that is) and Freddie Jones ran the show. That team went all the way to the Elite Eight and was so much fun to watch. Oregon will be successful in this game and in the tourney if they stick with their fast tempo and Porter, the stud freshman, plays like he did in the Pac-10 Tourney. (He was named the MVP.) It shouldn't be a very good game. But in March, that usually means it will be.

Off to post game press conferences.
