The Ducks are the last Pac-12 team standing in the NCAA tournament.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-UC Irvine vs Oregon Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Arguably the best four-day stretch of the sports calendar is in the books, and the Oregon Ducks are the lone survivor from the Pac-12.

After watching the Pac-12 this season, it’s impressive the conference even has a representative in the second week of the NCAA Tournament. Not only that, but the conference could come away with a winning record in the NCAA Tournament this year — if you count Arizona State’s win in the First Four.

ASU beat St. John’s in the First Four, then lost to Buffalo in the round of 64. Washington and Oregon both won their first-round matchups to advance to the weekend. Washington got blown out by North Carolina, while the Ducks beat UC Irvine to advance to the Sweet 16.

Oregon will face a familiar foe when it takes on Tony Bennett and No. 1-seeded Virginia. Maybe Aaron Brooks and Maarty Leunen will receive some extra eligibility to bank in some threes and hit some clutch free throws.

So the question is, who are you rooting for?
