I would defy anyone to come up with a catch-all label for the Pac-12's performance Thursday in the NCAA Tournament's round of 64.
The conference was all over the map, while winning decisively (Oregon), losing at the buzzer (Arizona State) and looking terrible (Colorado).
No. 7-seeded Oregon looked like the team that started and finished the regular season well, as the opposed to the version of the Ducks that slumped in the middle. Oregon beat No. 10 BYU 87-68 with superior athletic ability and good defense. The Ducks now have to play No. 2 Wisconsin on Saturday in what amounts to a road game at Milwaukee, Wis.<
