Oregon brings Michigan's magical postseason run to an end 69-68 and advances to the Elite Eight for the second straight season. The Ducks await the winner of Kansas-Purdue for the right to play in the Final Four.

Watching Michigan, I'm reminded of UConn's incredible run in 2011. Those Huskies won 11 (that's e-l-e-v-e-n!!) straight elimination games in the Big East and NCAA tournaments. This would be seven in a row for the Wolverines if they pull it out.

I'm not putting Michigan's Derrick Walton Jr., on the same level as Kemba Walker's 2011 NCAA tournament run at UConn just yet. But, wow, Walton has picked the Wolverines up every time they've needed him to make a big shot.

Oregon's Dillon Brooks showed the first bit of outward emotion after his last 3-pointer. Don't know if that means he's about to get on a roll, but he seems to play better when he does -- just check last year's Sweet 16 win vs Duke for proof.

Michigan not making open shots, but its offense is running smoothly. Wolverines had 10 assists on 11 baskets in the first half. Guard Derrick Walton Jr., with seven assists (four on 3-pointers) and 11 points. He accounted for 29 of their 33 first half points.

Chris Boucher's loss for Oregon was big, but Jordan Bell is reminding Michigan that he blocks shots too. Bell already has collected his per game average of two in the first half. Besides a missed dunk, Bell's playing a man's game in the post rebounding and scoring.

Oregon has to feel fortunate it's not trailing by more with its two leading scorers Dillon Brooks and Tyler Dorsey off to such a poor start. shooting. They average a combined 30 points per game but so far are a collective 1-for-8.

Not much in terms of atmosphere at the Sprint Center some late-arriving Kansas fans haven't filled in the lower bowl just yet and not enough Ducks & Wolverines to make a difference.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Oregon entered the game only allowing opponents to shoot just 31 percent from 3-point range. Can't tell from Michigan's early start. The Wolverines first three baskets all uncontested 3s including two from big man Moritz Wagner.

Although much of the talk about Michigan has been about its run since the plane incident, the Wolverines' turnaround started after a Feb. 4 loss to Ohio State. Michigan has lost twice since then -- in overtime at Minnesota and on a buzzer-beater at Northwestern. During this time, the Wolverines' national title odds at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook have gone from 200-1 to 18-1.
