OR point guard Payton Pritchard had 19 points and eight assists, and Kenny Wooten dominated the paint with four blocks as the 12th-seeded Ducks beat Wisconsin 72-54 Friday in a first-round game in the South Region in San Jose, Calif.

Oregon, though it had struggles of its own in the first half, hit its first three attempts from the arc in the second half, injecting more energy into the building. The Wisconsin Badgers followed Marquette's path and lost a matchup as five seed against a 12. OR is 6-2 in NCAA Tournament games under coach Kelly Graves. "I think this made us hungrier", Kennedy said. "So to see them not fall is just disappointing to see", Davison explained. "And at this time of year, you can't do that".
