Oregon is in a very good position to win the Pac-12 Conference right now with a two-game cushion over Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA in conference play.
As of now, the Ducks need to win their last nine of 11 games to win the Pac-12 regular-season title.
With conference games continuing through the beginning of March, teams like Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA will still need to play each other again. This results in more losses for these teams and puts Oregon in even better shape.
Oregon may end up only needing eight more wins to take home the Pac-12 regular-season title.
The Ducks have been tough at home this season and should win their last five home games. Where the Ducks could slip up might be on the road at Stanford this Wednesday, at Washington on February 13 and at Colorado on March 7.
If the Ducks happen to lose these three games, they could lose another three games and still make the NCAA Tournament. If they do, they would still be a lock with a 23-8 regular-season record.
The Ducks currently have an RPI of 20 and have key wins against UNLV, Arizona and UCLA. The wins against UNLV and UCLA were both on the road.
