The No. 7 seed Oregon Ducks have a chance to erase one of the few blemishes during their late-season surge when they meet the sixth-seeded USC Trojans in a Sweet 16 matchup of the 2021 NCAA Tournament on Sunday. The Ducks (21-6) have lost only twice in their last 14 games and have a chance to avenge one of those setbacks — a 72-58 road defeat to the Pac-12 rival Trojans on Feb. 22. Oregon barely edged out USC for the Pac-12’s regular-season title but both teams put on impressive displays with dominant second-round victories over higher seeds.
Tip-off is at 9:45 p.m. at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. William Hill Sportsbook lists the Trojans as two-point favorites, while the over-under for total points scored is 138 in the latest USC vs. Oregon odds.
