Oregon reacts to tough loss to Virginia Tech

Big Tournament

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Oregon’s 10-game winning streak came to an end Thursday night — ending what’s been a season to celebrate. 

Oregon took a 45-42 lead on a Louis King 3-pointer with 5:43 left, but the Ducks wouldn’t make another basket the rest of the night.

Ty Jerome scored 13 points and put Virginia ahead for good by sinking a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 3:34 left as the top-seeded Cavaliers outlasted No. 12 seed Oregon 53-49 in a South Region semifinal.

The Cavaliers will face No. 3 seed Purdue in the South Region championship game Saturday. Virginia is seeking its first Final Four appearance since 1984, while Purdue is trying to get there for the first time since 1980.
