Oregon had little trouble dispatching #14 Iona State in their first conference game, but they could have their hands full with #11 Rhode Island.

The Rams entered this season ranked in the top-25 and they certainly looked the part in taking down an excellent Creighton team who also spent much of the season as a ranked team.

They won Friday 84-72 in a tale of two halves. They won the defensive struggle in the first, outscoring the Bluejays 33-26 and then won the offensive tussle in the second coming out on top 51-46.

That speaks to their versatility and ability to keep up with most teams in this tournament.

And they did it in spite hitting just 19% (4-21) from long range.

That is one aspect that will need to improve if they’re to beat an Oregon team that’s been one of the best teams in the country all year.

They finished second in the PAC-12 just a shade behind Arizona and were a top-10 ranked team for most of the season.

They are versatile as well scoring 79.5 PPG (t-41st) and allowing 65.4 PPG (34th).

They used a dominant first half to pull away from the Gaels and then held them at bay in the second. Tyler Dorsey led all scorers with 24 points.

This game has all the makings of a buzzer beater and could certainly feature the Rams moving on.

BetOnline has the Oregon listed as 5½-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 140.
