The NCAA Tournament has almost trimmed the field from 68 teams down to the Final Four, with the quartet of schools headed for the Alamodome in San Antonio all having at least one championship in their history. The Ducks had five players average in double figures during the regular season, and while Satou Sabally and Maite Cazorla have struggled scoring in the tournament, Oregon's received a boost from Oti Gildon averaging almost 11 points off the bench during the NCAAs. Villanova and Kansas will play the later game. The University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) nearly didn't even make the tournament as it took a last second 3-pointer at the buzzer to defeat the University of Vermont in their conference championship to get an automatic bid.

Six minutes later, as the Red Raiders started to inch back into the game, DiVincenzo followed a miss by Bridges and timed it perfectly for a rim-rattling dunk.

In the second half, the Wildcats benefited from a few momentum-changing dunks, including a jam from Omari Spellman, who didn't make much of an impact in the first half because of foul trouble.
