dominant second-round victories over higher s
The No. 7 seed Oregon Ducks have a chance to erase one of the few blemishes during their late-season surge when they meet the sixth-seeded USC Trojans in a Sweet 16 matchup of the 2021 NCAA Tournament on Sunday. The Ducks (21-6) have lost only twice in their last 14 games and have a chance to avenge one of those setbacks -- a 72-58 road defeat to the Pac-12 rival Trojans on Feb. 22. Oregon barely edged out USC for the Pac-12's regular-season title but both teams put on impressive displays with dominant second-round victories over higher seeds.

Why USC can cover
The Trojans have a huge advantage inside with 7-foot freshman sensation Evan Mobley and his brother Isaiah, who combined for 27 points, 21 rebounds and four blocked shots in the romp over Kansas. Evan Mobley is in the conversation for the top overall pick in the NBA Draft, but he had only 11 points and five rebounds in last month's 72-58 home win over Oregon. The Trojans won handily despite Isaiah Mobley missing the game with a calf injury.
