Wisconsin has played OR twice in the tournament before: in 2014's second round in Milwaukee, winning 85-77, and in 2015's second round in Omaha, winning again, 72-65.
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.
Actually, Oregon was one of the trendy upset picks in bracket pools as a Power 5 conference tournament champion riding a hot streak.
OR made nine steals in the first half, four of them by Hebard, and forced 10 PSU turnovers.
The Oregon Ducks have turned their game around at the right time with four wins in the PAC 12 capped off by a 68-48 rout of top seed Washington in the title game.
"We got pretty good looks, it's just a matter of making shots", Trice, who missed eight threes, said.

But across the country you can see the anger. "Everyone feels betrayed", Freeman tweeted. "This can't go on". It would also open up other options such as holding a general election or a second referendum .
The Badgers also don't turn it over, which will help against the OR pressure. Payton Pritchard also scores 12.7 points per game and adds 4.5 assists per contest.
Happ, facing constant double teams from a lengthy OR defense, ended his career with 12 points, eight rebounds and no assists - off his season averages of 17.5, 10.1 and 4.6, respectively. The Ducks rode those triples and easy dunks to a game-high nine-point lead around the midway point of the second half.
Portland State made only four 2-point baskets in the game, which saw OR take control in the second quarter. In the seven tournaments in Las Vegas, the Ducks have played in five championship games (winning in 2013, 2016 and 2019) and have advanced to the semifinal round six times.
Needless to say, after All-American Ethan Happ came back for his redshirt senior season and the Badgers got healthy, a first-round exit in the NCAA Tournament was not the ideal ending to a season that had much more potential, as Brad Davison mentioned after the game. Natisha Hiedeman scored 13 points to lead Marquette.
OR is not looking to slow down any time soon. Ruthy Hebard had 22 points and 12 rebounds.
