Oklahoma is off to the Final Four for the first time since 2002.
Buddy Hield dropped 37 points in a Steph Curry like performance to send Oregon home from March Madness. Oh yeah, and he did it just to impress Kobe Bryant. As Hield said after the game “As soon as I saw Kobe was here, I knew I had to put on a show.”
He followed that up with “It was special man, I can’t tell you how special… A guy you really looked up to growing up. You don’t get that everyday…It’s kind of special that he knows who I am now. I appreciate Kobe taking his time coming out and watching, it means so much to me.”
Isaiah Cousins had the second best fantasy basketball day with 11 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 1 steal, while Jordan Woodard contributed 13 points, 1 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal himself.
Oregon’s Elgin Cook dropped 24 points plus 4 assists in the loss.
