Ezra Shaw/Getty Images(SAN JOSE, CA) — It cannot be an NCAA tournament without a No. 12 seed upsetting a five.

Damyean Dotson scored 17 points, Arsalan Kazemi chipped in 11 points and 17 rebounds as No. 12 Oregon (27-8) upset fifth-seeded Oklahoma State 68-55 to advance to the next round of the NCAA tournament.

The Ducks sure did not play like a team who deserved a 12 seed.  The selection committee gave them one despite the fact that they tied for second place in the PAC-12 in the regular season.  They also defeated UCLA to win the conference tournament last week.

Markel Starks led Oklahoma State (24-9), with 16 points.

Oregon advances to take on No. 4 Saint Louis, who eliminated New Mexico State from the tournament on Thursday afternoon.
