Who do you want to win: Oregon or Iowa?

The Huskies made it clear who they are rooting for when No. 3 seed Oregon plays No. 7 Iowa in the NIT second round game 2 p.m. today on ESPU.
Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said he didn’t care who won, but the UW players are hoping to face the Ducks once again in Tuesday quarterfinals with a trip to New York hanging in the balance.
“I want to play Oregon just because they beat us so bad at their place,” sophomore guard C.J. Wilcox said. “We have a chance to get them back and show that we’re a better team.”
Freshman guard Tony Wroten Jr. told the Everett Herald: “I would love to play them (Oregon) because they embarrassed us last time,. We have no problem playing Iowa, but I would love to play (the Ducks) again. … We’re going to come out pumped and ready. They pretty much embarrassed us last time, in Eugene, so it’ll be about revenge.”
Oregon coach Dana Altman told the Register-Guard Iowa reminds him of Colorado. Here’s a summary of the Oregon-Iowa matchup.
Iowa may have difficulty with Oregon’s length and stopping versatile forward E.J. Singler. The Hawkeyes see some of themselves in the Ducks.
Oregon is 23-9 and finished third in the conference with a 13-5 record. The Ducks were 1-1 against Washington, including a 76-60 defeat at Edmundson Pavilion on Dec. 31 and an 82-57 win at Matt Arena on Feb. 9.
Iowa is 18-16 and finished eighth in the Big Ten with an 8-10 record.
AROUND THE PAC-12:
— Colorado is coming to grips after its loss to Baylor in the third round of the NCAA tournament.
— Arizona still believes it’s a perennial national power and Solomon Hill told the Arizona Daily star he felt the season was a “complete failure.” The Wildcats had to deal with a lot of off-court distractions including: Kevin Parrom being shot, Sidiki Johnson being kicked off the team and Josiah Turner’s suspensions. Arizona’s season began with an exhibition loss to Seattle Pacific, which has a harbinger of its troubles.
Jon Wilner at the Mercury News blames coach Johnny Dawkins for Stanford’s disappointing ninth-place finish in the Pac-12.
— Oregonian columnist John Canzano took in the NCAA tournament action this weekend at Portland and said the big losers are Oregon and Oregon State.
