The 2012 Pacific Life Pac-12 Tournament keeps on trucking Thursday at Staples Center as the No. 3 seeded Oregon Ducks (22-8, 13-5 Pac-12) take on the No. 6 Colorado Buffaloes (20-11, 11-7 Pac-12) to see who can keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive this season.
The Buffs pulled away late against the Utah Utes on Wednesday by the score of 53-41 to advance to the next round, where the Ducks are already waiting from them after a first-round bye. Oregon is chocked full of confidence heading into the matchup, owning a victory over the Buffaloes 90-81 last Thursday and a regular season ending win over the Utah as well on Sunday. These two spit their regular season matchups, each getting a victory on their home courts.
