However, they will also get a red-hot club in Nevada-Las Vegas, which is riding a nine-game winning streak after knocking off second-seeded Wisconsin on Sunday. As expected, the talented backcourt of Brooks, Taylor and Porter have driven Oregon to its best showing since reaching the regional final in 2002. The trio have combined for 84 points in the two wins, with four-year starter Brooks averaging 20 points while committing just three turnovers. It will be the play of the backcourt that will further determine the fate of the Ducks, as the Runnin' Rebels possess strong guards in Kevin Kruger and Jo'Van "Wink" Adams. NEXT GAME: Friday vs. (7) Nevada-Las Vegas at St. Louis
