At the end of the day, Rhode Island just couldn't keep Oregon's dynamic wing duo of Dorsey and Dillon Brooks, who combined for 46 points.

OR came out in the second half and continued to struggle with Rhode Island's defensive toughness, but it was Oregon's defense in the last 10 minutes of the game that changed the complexion of the contest.

OR now faces MI on Thursday in Kansas City in the Sweet 16.

Early in the second half, Rhode Island built a double-digit lead, and it seemed as though it had an answer for every punch OR could throw.

Baskets were exchanged allowing the Rams to go back up by six at 66-60, but then Brooks was fouled on a 3-point shot, at the 6:03 mark.

He was a nightmare for Rhode Island on the perimeter by going 4-for-5 from three.

No. 3 seed OR was on the ropes the entire second half but finally began closing the gap, not surprisingly behind the impressive shot-making of Brooks, the Pac-12's player of the year, then Dorsey.

They kept up the pace, attacking the OR defense and leading by as much as 11 points with more than 13 minutes left in the game. On top of that, the Ducks have to crash the offensive glass the same way. Dorsey was a force all night long, carrying his team with a barrage of jump shots, no bigger than the game victor he hit with 36 seconds left. OR trailed Rhode Island, 46-38 at the half and was getting very little scoring from anyone besides Dorsey.

OR committed 14 turnovers and failed to secure key defensive rebounds playing again without injured big man Chris Boucher, who tore the ACL in his left knee during the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals. In the first half, Rhode Island shot 59 percent from the field. "We overcame stuff like this all year", Bell said. Dorsey was the Player of the Game shooting nine of ten from the floor.

URI was led in scoring by Robinson with 21 with Terrell adding 15 and Matthews with 13.

"He got us going in the press and he hit two big free throws", OR coach Dana Altman said.

After Dylan Ennis' jawing earned the Ducks a warning, Brooks received a first-half technical - and Altman didn't like it one bit.

Rhode Island had one last chance, but E.C. Matthews missed the game-tying three in the final seconds.

Just a plain proud father moment, indeed.

Oregon: Dorsey has scored 20 or more points in a career-high five straight games.
