KOIN 6 News cameras were in the locker room after practice.

"We've just got to keep them off the offensive glass and limit them from second chance points because they're a great offensive, rebounding team," Guard Tyler Dorsey said.

"You know, don't sleep on us. As Jordan says, we're not sweet, but nothing's sweet about us but we just want to go out there and play loose, play free-minded," Forward Dillon Brooks said.

As players and fans anxiously await what's to come on Friday, the party and festivities are underway downtown. Big music acts like Keith Urban, Macklemore and Aerosmith will perform.

Fans have flocked to Phoenix to celebrate Oregon's progress in the tournament. The Final Four Fan Fest is underway all weekend with events for all fans.
