Week in review
The Arizona swing was obviously no way for Oregon (No. 53 RPI, No. 96 SOS) to finish the season. The Ducks were swept in Tempe and Tucson and, as a result, are no longer a lock to receive an NCAA Tournament bid. The most costly of the losses was the 91-77 defeat to Arizona State (No. 32 RPI, No. 19 SOS) on Thursday. The Sun Devils exploited Oregon's shortcomings on defense by putting four players in double figures and shooting 51 percent. That result also amounts to the difference between the two teams in the final Pac-10 standings.
