Wisconsin stood tall against a run-and-gun Oregon offense that ranked 11th in the country in points per game. The Badgers reached the 80-point plateau for just the eighth time in their 85-77 win over the Ducks.
Wisconsin trailed by 12 at the half but outscored the Ducks 43-28 in front of a strong Badgers contingent in Milwaukee. The Badgers also withstood a strong dose of Ducks guard Joseph Young, who scored a game-high 29 points.
All five Wisconsin starters scored double figures, led by Frank Kaminsky’s team-high 19 points. But the Badgers won this game on the boards, outrebounding the Ducks, 39-29. Wisconsin will now make the trip to Anaheim, Calif., for the Sweet 16. See you soon, Mr. Badger.
