It's a great week to be a Duck!
After fighting their way to the Final Four as a No. 3 seed in the 2017 NCAA tournament, the Oregon Ducks are on a good streak.
Now the team has Kobe Bryant in its corner as it gears up to take on the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels on Saturday to stake its spot in the championship game against either Gonzaga or South Carolina.
The NBA legend showed up to personally deliver a pair of Nike Kobe A.D. NXT shoes to each player. They came in special-edition packaging that included Black Mamba pins.
The kicks are appropriately in Oregon colors, so it seems the Ducks may have an extra boost on their feet in Phoenix.
