NCAA Tournament 2017: Three reasons No. 3 OR upset No. 1 KansasBy Darlene Powers Mar 26, 2017
Last season, both Kansas and OR were stopped shy of the Final Four.
"They all stick with me, and they'll stick with the players who've been part of it", Self said.

First it was freshman Josh Jackson facing his buddies and hometown team in Michigan State. "To have special years, you gotta perform well in the NCAA Tournament and we performed this year as well as we ever have in three games". "They hit some big shots".
OR will go on to face the number one seeded Kansas Jayhawks Saturday for a spot in the final four. But they're going to be there because he's a hell of a coach.
OR head coach Dana Altman disputes a call during the first half on Saturday, March. But Kansas might be getting better. They just continue to show great poise.
The Wolverines shot a combined 46 percent from behind the arc in their first two tourney games - including a 16-for-29 showing in their first round game - before finishing tonight 11-of-31 (35.5 percent) from deep. All season, as the Jayhawks racked up victories, the story line was how they were clutch, and kept winning close games in a very tough Big 12.
It will be a home environment for the Jayhawks, but I'm just glad they won't be able to bring their usual refereeing crew with them. But Jackson isn't even Kansas' best player, as Frank Mason III could be the guy to edge Swanigan for national player of the year honors. Devonte Graham, fresh off a scintillating 26 points against Purdue, went 0 for 7. And star freshman Josh Jackson has brushed off his many off-the-court issues to send his National Basketball Association draft stock soaring.

But whip lists suggested that more than two dozen GOP House members - including a few from Texas - refused to lend support. He added that "it's possible" that Trump's personal communications were captured that way by the US intelligence community.
The game went back-and-forth from there as Dorsey responded with a three-pointer on Oregon's next possession. "Today was our crappy game and we just didn't come out on top".
The Ducks (32-5) have done a sublime job of that so far.
The Ducks are 3-4 against the Jayhawks all-time, dating back to their first meeting in 1947-48. He scored on an offensive rebound at Stanford the last weekend of February - the same weekend in which Brooks completed Oregon's rally at Cal in the final seconds. Jones and Walker-Kimbrough gave Maryland four stupendous years, reaching two Final Fours and making history along the way. We recruit against each other all the time. "We've been fortunate we've played consistently well, but it's going to take another effort like that to advance". The Jayhawks and their faithful never get used to the disappointment of losing in regional finals, but this 74-60 loss to No. 3 OR on Saturday night was excruciating. In building a lead of as many as 18 points (55-37) early in the second half, the Ducks continued to torch the nets, keeping their shooting hovering around 60 percent as many as eight minutes into the second half.
FAREWELL: It didn't take long after UCLA's loss to Kentucky for star freshman point guard Lonzo Ball to say he was moving on from the college game. OR lost third-leading scorer and rim protector Chris Boucher to a knee injury in the Pac-12 tournament, but has battled its way into the Elite Eight with a versatile roster. The Bulldogs scored the game's final six points to earn a hard-fought 61-58 win over fourth-seeded West Virginia in the West Regional semifinals. "We liked him a lot", he said. "We can't let that affect us", Mason said.
"We felt like we had all the pieces to the puzzle to get to the Final Four", Graham said, "Today, we just came up short".
His son, Jayhawks' senior center Landen Lucas, grew up a Ducks fan, but the one-time Sunset student and eventual Westview High graduate traded in his Duck walk for Rock Chalk. That was in the 2002 regional finals in Madison, Wisconsin. "It's nearly like the Final Four could be the equivalent of the national championship 30 years ago, with the type of intensity and the type of publicity it gets".
