Sooners Defeat Ducks In Elite 8.


And then there were four. Well, by Monday there will be four, and the Ducks won't be among them.

The University of Oregon men's basketball team ended their storybook season Saturday. They lost 80 to 68 to Oklahoma in the Elite 8 round of the NCAA tournament.

The Ducks never found an answer to Oklahoma's Buddy Hield, who scored 37 points, hitting eight 3 pointers.

Oregon Senior Elgin Cook, who was named to the all-regional team, scored 24 points for the Ducks. Oregon finished with a school record 31 wins and Pac-12 titles in both the regular season and conference tournament.

The Sooners advanced to their first Final Four since 2002.
