  Senior forward Arsalan Kazemi, who is from Iran, had this to say after the game.
 
"Every year at this time I was sitting home watching the game on TV. It's really exciting that I get to play on it. My friends are watching me on TV. It's really cool."

The Ducks have the daunting task of facing number one seeded Louisville Friday. They'll play in the Midwest regional in Indianapolis. Oregon is 2 and 1 against the Cardinals all-time.
