Oregon extends March run with upset over 5th-seeded Wisconsin

Payton Pritchard knocked down 19 points to lead 12th-seeded OR to a 72-54 win over fifth-seeded Wisconsin in the South Region in San Jose. They did about what was expected of them, getting knocked out by No. 1 seed Michigan State in the semifinals, 67-55. Like Oregon as a whole, Wooten has played very well lately, recording four blocks in each of his last two games.

If you want to simplify things, just look to Louis King.

Last week, OR set the conference tournament record for margin of victory in a 33-point win over Washington State. The Badgers have won six of their last eight, but are just 2-7-1 against the spread in their last 10.

Jake: Irvine's win over Kansas State was impressive, but OR is on a serious roll.

Three Pac-12 teams landed in the NCAA Tournament; Oregon, Washington and Arizona State. Yes, Oregon was one of the hottest teams in the nation, but the Badgers had all the talent to defeat them and advance to the round of 32. The Ducks were swept by the Beavers this season. Pritchard's style stood in contrast to Wisconsin's continually slow-it-down approach, and the Ducks took advantage in scoring all of the game's fast-break points.

As Duck fans know, it was their defense that spearheaded their late-season run to the Big Dance.

Sophomore Kenny Wooten averages 2.0 blocks per game as the rim protector on a team ranked No. 18 nationally in the KenPom adjusted defensive efficiency ratings. He delivered all season, averaging 17.5 points, 10.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game to help Wisconsin finish fourth in the Big Ten. He was held to 12 points, eight rebounds, zero assists and five turnovers.

"It doesn't tarnish. It stings for a while, but it doesn't tarnish what this group accomplished to get to this point", Gard said. UW entered Selection Sunday knowing it would be in the field, but there was still meaning in seeing its name pop up on the screen.

D'Mitrik Trice and Brad Davison are the first names that come to mind.

It's not going to get any easier for the Badgers next season. OR has been outstanding in this regard all season, holding opponents to just 29.4 percent from three, which is good for No. 12 nationally. "You're either playing a team that is hot coming in, like OR, OR you're going to play a team that had a really good regular season". "We were really good (Saturday) in stretches". But behind fantastic play from their top three scorers-in addition to some help from key reserves like Miles Norris and Ehab Amin-they were able to get it done.
