With the Sweet 16 on the line, neither team was willing to give in. No. 1 seed Wisconsin wasn’t able to pull away from the Ducks until late in this one, 72-65. The Ducks gave the Badgers and Bo Ryan all they could handle. Frank Kaminsky did not steal the show, but he was able to tally 16 points.
In one of the higher scoring games of the day, No. 8 Oregon knocked off No. 9 Oklahoma State, 79-73, with elite play from Joseph Young.
