Anthony Mathis led Oregon with 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting including 5-of-9 from 3-point distance plus 1-of-1 at the free throw line in 25 minutes of action.

The Ducks are 9-0 ATS in their last nine neutral site games. Oregon is 4-0 ATS in its last four non-conference games.
The Pirates are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games overall. Seton Hall is 15-5-1 ATS in its last 21 neutral site games.
This game is almost a tossup with these two very evenly matched squads playing on a neutral setting. The Pirates had to travel a little less to get to the Bahamas and have a premier scorer in Powell. Both squads are a little better on the offensive end than the defensive side, but they are each solid defensively as well. With such a tough call, I have to go with the Pirates and the points here as this could come down to the final possession. Powell for a game-winner perhaps?
