The Trojans showed up strong in Indianapolis on Monday night, and defeated the Kansas Jayhawks 85-51. Andy Enfield's team will now advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2007.
The stakes are high as the winner of this matchup will advance to the Elite Eight and the loser will head home, but until tip-off begins, here are three things you need to know.
No. 1 ANDY ENFIELD TALKS OREGON
"We have a lot of respect for that team," Enfield said. "The Pac-12, we've been trying to tell you guys the last few years, the Pac-12 is really good. I think you've seen that. So to play Oregon in the Sweet 16, honestly, I wish we were playing a team from another conference. But at least one of us will move on to the Elite Eight."
