March Madness Coming To Eugene


March Madness is coming to Eugene. The Oregon Women's Basketball team will host Portland State at Matthew Knight Arena on Friday to open the NCAA Tournament.

After winning the Pac-12 regular season title and reaching the conference tournament final, the Ducks (29-4) received a No. 2 seed for the second year in a row. Oregon was placed in the regional to be hosted by Portland for the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight rounds.

In addition to the Oregon- PSU first round game, Matthew Knight Arena will also host a match-up between No. 7 Texas and No. 10 Indiana, with the winner to play the Oregon-PSU winner on Sunday.

The Longhorns and Hoosiers tip off Friday at 4 p.m. Then, 30 minutes later, the Ducks will play the Vikings, who are the Big Sky Conference Tournament champions.

All-session tickets are available now, with single-game tickets on sale Friday. Both games will be televised on ESPN2.
