In three seasons, the Oregon Ducks have progressed over the array of post-season tournaments, from the CBI, to the NIT and now the NCAA.
Dana Altman has guided Oregon over those three seasons of improvement. On Friday, the surprising 12th-seeded Ducks (28-8) will face top-seeded Louisville (31-5) in the round of 16 in Indianapolis.
The Nebraska native was hired by the Ducks in the spring of 2010 to replace Ernie Kent, who was dismissed after 13 seasons at his alma mater. Oregon went 16-16 in Kent's final season.
Altman is 73-36 over his three seasons with the Ducks, who will face a considerable challenge in Louisville. The Rick Pitino-led Cardinals, who went to the Final Four last season, have won 12 straight going into Friday afternoon's game.
