Date: Friday, March 17

Time: 2:00 p.m. E.T.

TV Channel: TBS

Location: Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA

Announcers: Spero Dedes, Steve Smith, Len Elmore and Ros Gold-Onwude

Opening Betting Line: Oregon -16, via OddsShark

Oregon has made 14 NCAA Tournament appearances, but the Ducks have only reached the Final Four once. Since the 2012-2013 season the Ducks have qualified for the tournament each year, but they've yet to make it beyond the Elite Eight.

Iona has made 11 NCAA Tournament appearances, but has never made it out of the opening weekend. In fact, the Gaels are actually 1-11 in the tournament, the lone win occurring in 1980 against Holy Cross.

Prediction: Oregon rolls in this one. The Ducks are a juggernaut, and the Iona Gaels will offer little in the way of resistance. I predict a solid 20 point victory and a 20 point effort from Brooks.
