Why isn't Oregon favored over Michigan?

Michigan, a No. 7 seed, is slightly favored over No. 3 seed Oregon because bettors are backing the feel-good story of the tournament. Dave Tuley thinks the Ducks should be favored on Thursday night.

Uni Watch: Oregon keeps it interesting

The Ducks are known for their ever-changing uniforms, which tend to be hit or miss. Which style will they go with for the rest of their tournament run?

ESPN's BPI breaks down who has the best chance to reach the elusive Final Four -- with three (fairly) clear frontrunners, including fourth-seeded Florida.

Michigan guard Derrick Walton Jr., has been largely overlooked in the conversation of the best guards in the nation, but he said he doesn't dwell on it for motivation: "That's a part of my mindset. My main thing is at the end of the day results speak more than anything anyone can say."

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Michigan coach John Beilein last month predicted the Big Ten, after appearing to be in a down year, would validate itself in the NCAA tournament. The Wolverines, Purdue and Wisconsin are still playing: "Time is a friend of truth. As time went on, I just figured the truth would come."

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Team of destiny? Nah. That's not how Michigan's Duncan Robinson views it: "People have thrown that term around. We feel like almost as if the plane crash was the boost we needed to get to where we are. We feel like we've been playing good basketball the second half of the season." The Wolverines have won 12 of 14 heading into Thursday's game vs Oregon.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Florida's odds to win the NCAA tournament have increased by 10 percent, largely thanks to Villanova and Duke's early exits in the East Region. Oregon and Baylor's chances to win have each increased by 4 percent, and Gonzaga and Arizona, 3 percent.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Entering the NCAA Tournament, ESPN.com/BPI projected that one team from among Villanova, Duke and Virginia had a 75 percent chance to represent the East Region in the Final Four. With those three all eliminated, the three biggest jumps in chance to reach Glendale are East Region teams.

Assessing Sweet 16 coaches: Dana Altman

Altman's squad excels at getting solid looks at the rim. But allowing excessive second-chance shots is an issue that could sink the Ducks' dreams of making it further in March.
