CLICK HERE FOR ASA’S EXPERT NCAA TOURNAMENT PICKS

We like the experience of Oklahoma here. They start 4 upperclassmen, including 3 seniors, who were in the Sweet 16 last season. This is the 4th NCAA tourney for the seniors. Oklahoma was considered by many to be the top team in the country until they hit a bit of a wall in mid February. They are now back in form winning 6 of their last 7 with their only loss coming by 2-points to West Virginia. At one point during the Big 12 regular season Kansas coach Bill Self basically said that OU was a step above the rest of the conference. Getting points with the Sooners in this spot is definitely worth a take. Oregon was the top team in the Pac 12 which turned out to be a vastly overrated conference as only 1 of their 7 NCAA entries made it past the first weekend. They are favored here partly due to the fact they looked very good against Duke the other night, but let’s not forget the Devils were not the Devils of old – they finished tied for 5th in the ACC. Oklahoma has played the tougher schedule (4th in SOS to 38th for Ducks), shoots the ball better (19th eFG% to 54th for Ducks), and defends better (14th in defensive efficiency to 35th for Ducks) yet they are a dog here. We like Oklahoma to win and move on to the Final 4.
