Men's basketball: Wisconsin folds in 72-54 loss to Oregon

Share

Wisconsin will take on 12th seeded Pac 12 champions OR in a first round game in San Jose Friday.

Louis King scored 17 and Paul White added 14 - all in the second half - as OR (24-12) pulled away from the No. 5-seeded Badgers after a 25-25 tie at halftime.

OR (24-12) followed up its Pac-12 tournament title by outscoring the 21st-ranked Badgers 47-29 in the second half for a ninth straight win that sent it into a second-round matchup against UC Irvine (31-5) on Sunday. Wooten, a springy 6-foot-9 forward, dunked three times en route to nine points and was key to slowing down Wisconsin star senior forward Ethan Happ.

Papa John's Stock Up After Shaq Joins Company Board
The NBA Hall of Famer will be a "triple threat", he said on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" after the announcement Friday morning. The newest one, O'Neal, said he is excited "to be able to help Papa John's raise their game to new heights".

The Wisconsin Badgers take the hardwood with Oregon Ducks in first round NCAA college basketball action. After reaching the Sweet 16 in each of the prior two NCAA Tournament appearances under head coach Greg Gard, this trip was a bit underwhelming.

In the South Region, Bilas has the Oregon Ducks continuing their winning ways with a first-round win over Wisconsin but bowing out to Kansas State in the round of 32.

The Oregon Ducks went 1-2 over the weekend against Washington.

Biogen Shares Plunges After Halting Phase 3 Of Alzheimer’s Disease Drug Trials
In January 2019, Roche RHHBY discontinued two late-stage studies evaluating its Alzheimer's disease candidate, crenezumab. Biogen is the latest pharmaceutical company to stop the research on treatment for Alzheimer's.

"It showed everybody today, it wasn't a fluke", Payton Pritchard, who scored 19 points, said after the Badgers win. "But in order to take that next jump, to play deep into the tournament, we've got to become more consistent and eliminate those blips on both ends of the floor". This is a group playing its best ball of the season at the best possible time, and that makes OR a sleeper to make a run in the tournament. OR forwards Louis King and Kenny Wooten said after the game that they had learned Happ's tendencies from film, and that anticipation showed in the second half.

That run to book an automatic berth included an overtime win over Arizona State on Friday and a 68-48 victory over top-seeded Washington in the final the following day.

Happ ended the game with 12 points and eight rebounds, but he wasn't able to drive the Badgers offense in the way he's relied on to. It was just the second time this season Happ failed to have an assist in a game.

Bug Alert! Samsung Galaxy S10 is having battery issues
This panel if you have noticed, is smaller than the 6 plus inch panels that the Galaxy A30 and the Galaxy A50 come with. The handset might not in its current form make it to low-priced markets like India and the rest of Asia.

The Wisconsin Badgers cheerleaders and mascot perform in the second half against the Kentucky Wildcats during the NCAA Men's Final Four Semifinal at Lucas Oil Stadium on April 4, 2015 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This way, they wouldn't have to rely on high-percentage shooting in order to score enough points.
