WATCH: Oregon’s Couisnard, Dante Discuss Upset Win Over South Carolina



PITTSBURGH — The 11th-seeded Oregon Ducks had no problem with being the underdog team going in against No. 6 South Carolina. The Ducks rolled through the Pac-12 Tournament, earning the automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.

At PPG Paints Arena on Thursday, the Ducks utilized flashy plays from their stars to take down the Gamecocks.

The Ducks were led by a record-setting performance from senior Jermaine Couisnard as he dropped a career-high 40 points, which is the most by a Duck in NCAA Tournament history. On top of that, it came against his former team.

Fellow senior N’Faly Dante also contributed to Oregon’s victory in a big way with 23 points, six rebounds, two blocks and one thunderous alley-oop jam.
