2012 NIT Tournament Bracket: Oregon And Washington Set For Rubber Match

The Oregon Ducks and Washington Huskies get a chance to settle the season series on Tuesday night.

The first time Washington and Oregon played each other on New Year's Eve in Seattle, Tony Wroten and C.J. Wilcox tore up the Ducks, as Devoe Joseph and Olu Ashaolu struggled mightily, taking a double-digit lead and holding it all through the final 10 minutes.

The rematch in Eugene went way better, as Oregon took a 23-point halftime lead and rolled to victory. The Ducks shot 20 percent better from the field than Washington, as Joseph, E.J Singler and Garrett Sim all put in 13 points, Carlos Emory leading the way. Wroten and Wilcox had solid games, but they weren't enough.

Washington and Oregon have proven they can put up the points. But can they both put up buckets at the same time? We shall see.

NIT bracket:

Region 1 quarterfinals: Washington vs. Oregon
Region 2 quarterfinals: Tennessee/Middle Tennessee winner vs. Miami (FL)/Minnesota winner
Region 3 quarterfinals: UMass vs. Drexel
Region 4 quarterfinals: Nevada vs. Stanford/Illinois State winner
