Oregon Ducks' Blueprint to Have a Deep Run in 2014 NCAA Tournament

In just four seasons, Dana Altman has done a fantastic job of re-establishing Oregon Ducks basketball.

He led the program to a CBI championship in 2011 and the NIT Quarterfinals in 2012.

A year ago, Oregon won the Pac-12 Tournament, and then, as a 12-seed, advanced to the 2013 NCAA tournament's Sweet 16.

The Ducks' have had a rollercoaster 2013-14 season.

After winning their first 13 games and being ranked No. 10 in the nation, Altman's squad dropped eight of its next 10 contests.

And then, when it looked like everything was unraveling, the Ducks won their last seven regular-season games and their opening round matchup with Oregon State before losing to eventual Pac-12 champs UCLA in the conference tournament semi's.

As it enters 2014 March Madness as a No. 7 seed, Oregon looks to make another deep run in this year's tournament.

Here are some key elements that could help Oregon make another deep run in the 2014 March Madness.
