This claim is true. On March 16, in the Pac-12 Tournament, the Oregon Ducks (23-11, 12-8 CONF) defeated the Colorado Buffaloes (24-10, 13-7 CONF) with a 75-68 win. This was their first Pac-12 title since 2019 (RegisterGuard). Point Guard Jackson Shelstad (scored 17 points and 5 rebounds) said, "We came here to get one thing done and we did it. I’m so proud of our team and how we played this weekend. We’re not done yet though. Now we gotta make something happen” (RegisterGuard). The Ducks went on to beat the South Carolina Gamecocks (87-73), but then lost to the Creighton Bluejays (73-86) (ESPN).
