Game Notes

Oregon and Oregon St. renew their Civil War rivalry in Tournament fashion, meeting in the final game of the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas.

The winner will meet UCLA (23-8, 12-6), the tournament's second seed, tomorrow evening at the same time.

The Ducks earned the 7th seed to the tournament with a 64-57 upset of top seed and conference regular season champion Arizona Saturday, as Jason Calliste came off the Duck bench to hit 4 of 5 3 pointers, for a team high 18 points. It was Oregon's 7th win in a row.

Up the road, the Beavers were beating Arizona St. 78-76 in overtime, as Roberto Nelson scored 8 of his 15 points in the extra period. Oregon St. was already locked into the 10th seed, regardless of the outcome of any of Saturday's action.

The teams split their regular season meetings, with both holding serve on their home court.

Oregon St. won the first meeting 80-72 at Gill Coliseum in January.

Oregon started their current 7 game winning streak with a 93-83 win in the rematch at Matthew Knight Arena the middle of last month.

It's the second most played college rivalry in the country, but this, the 342nd meeting, will be a rare episode, the first ever played in the post-season, or outside of the state's borders, which will reduce the size of the divided crowd, but not the intensity of the contest. The Beavers lead the series all time 185-156.

Oregon St. will have Langston Morris-Walker available again. Morris-Walker was suspended from the Arizona St. game, after having been charged with DUII early Friday morning, but the charge was dropped on Tuesday.

Here's a look at the complete tournament field.

Being in Las Vegas, the opportunity to legally bet on-shore exists for fans at the tournament, so its worth noting the odds on Oregon St. winning the tournament is 150-1, whereas Oregon's odds are 7-1, according to Bovada.
