Oregon Take Pac-12 Title

Wisconsin must make 3-point shots limit turnovers and play stingy defense to slow down Oregon

The sixth-seeded Ducks (22-12) dominated early, went into a second-half funk and fought their way back in a foul-filled second half.

Preview: Wisconsin and OR play contrasting styles and will be an interesting matchup.

On Feb. 23, Oregon was sitting at 15-12 overall and 6-8 in the conference after a three-game losing streak, which included a loss to in-state rival Oregon State at Gill Coliseum.

"So because of Kenny, because of Francis, because of our length inside and being able to run guys off, if we get them contested - but we were screwing up so much, having two guys go to the same guy, leaving somebody wide open".

A general view of the crowd as the Wisconsin Badgers practice for the NCAA Men's Final Four at Lucas Oil Stadium on April 3, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana. However, there might be no team in the country hotter right now.

To make matters worse, OR matches up extremely well with the Badgers defensively. Of course, we are talking about senior big man Ethan Happ.

His comments, in a brief speech broadcast online from his official residence, brought a new level of vitriol to the election race. Netanyahu called on Gantz to come clean as "the only way not to be vulnerable to blackmail". "I have a wonderful family".

As of late, Happ has received some extra help on the offensive end from an unlikely source in Khalil Iverson, who over the last eight games has averaged 12.9 points on 61.8 percent shooting, along with 6.8 rebounds. "Scoring in the paint for Happ and Iverson could be tough going as OR has implemented a lineup where four of the five players on the court are 6'9" OR taller.

Wisconsin has three strong perimeter shooters surrounding Happ on offense. With a first unit composed of four native Oregonians and one Washingtonian, coach Howard Hobson guided the "Tall Firs" to a 29-5 season record and Oregon's only NCAA basketball title. This is all very bad news for a Wisconsin team that has already been in an abysmal shooting slump over the last few weeks.

The Badgers (23-10) accomplished a major mission by getting back to the NCAA tournament after a one-year absence. If another occurs on Friday, the Badgers are toast. They gave up only 48 points to Washington, the regular-season conference champion, in the Pac-12 championship game - this after holding them to 47 March 9.

This matchup clearly is not ideal for Wisconsin, but the Badgers remain fully capable of winning this game thanks to an elite defense of their own, and an OR offense that, in general, has not been anything special this season.

Friday will feature two games in Eugene. The Ducks beat the Huskies by 20 points. The Ducks are one of only 11 schools nationally that have won 20 games in a row for at least nine consecutive seasons.

Badgers fall in a tight one, 64-60.
