Oregon to Play Holy Cross in NCAA Tournament 1st Round

Thursday, March 17, 2016

 

The top seeded Oregon Ducks will face 16th seeded Holy Cross on Friday, March 18 with tip off set for 4:27 pacific time.

Holy Cross is an early Cinderella story after winning their conference tournament as a 9 seed, winning four games on the road,  and then beating Southern in a First Four game on Wednesday night.

A 16 seed has never beat a one seed in the NCAA Tournament, but Holy Cross might be one of the hottest 16 seeds of all time.

Here is a recap of the Holy Cross game:

With the game tied at 52 with 1:21 left to play, Holy Cross's Robert Champion hit a three to give Holy Cross a 55-52 lead with 56 seconds left to play in the game.

Cullen Hamilton would hit two free throws to put the Crusaders up 57-52 with 28 seconds left.

The Jaguars got within two, 57-55, after Adrian Rodgers hit a three with 24 seconds to play, however, Robert Champion was able to close the game out at the free throw line.

After leading by as much as 12 in the first half, Holy Cross trailed by as much as four, 42-38 and 44-40, in the second half.

Good Start, Poor Finish in 1st Half

Holy Cross led by as much as 12 points in the first half and were up 25-13 with 3:51 to play before Southern closed the half on a 9-2 run to trail 27-22 at the half.

Prior to that, Holy Cross had held Southern to just 7 points with 7:12 to play in the half.

The Crusaders forced Southern into 6 first half turnovers, once again executing the 1-3-1 zone to perfection.
