Oregon-St. Joe's will be a very interesting game. Should be interesting to see how the Hawks handle the Ducks' athletic wings. Holy Cross players said that was the toughest part of the game.

SJU coach Phil Martelli admits that with the difficulties of watching the Pac-12 (network, late games) that he had "no idea" about Oregon, his team's opponent tomorrow. "This is my livelihood and I'm saying to you, until I heard on the broadcast that they had finished the season No. 5, I had no idea. ... If you said to our players, 'Did Oregon win the Pac-12 or did Arizona?' They would lean to Arizona. As would basketball people in Philadelphia."

Oregon coach Dana Altman said he saw SJU's DeAndre' Bembry during the season on a few A-10 games. Said he's impressed with his passing, ball handling and how he scores in so many different ways.
