Wisconsin will look to keep the Big Ten Conference's perfect NCAA Tournament record alive when the Badgers take on the Pac-12 champion Oregon Ducks today. Here is a look at how the two teams stack up.
The Badgers secured their spot in the NCAA Tournament thanks to a 22-9 regular season record that included upset wins over Michigan, Maryland and Iowa. Wisconsin was able to reach the Big Ten Tournament Semifinals before falling to the Wolverines. They enter the tournament as the No. 5 seed in the South.
Oregon was inconsistent for much of the year and entered the Pac-12 tournament as the No. 6 seed after going 10-8 in the conference and 19-12 overall. But thanks to upset wins over higher-seeded Utah, Arizona State, and Washington, they were able to win the Pac-12 title and secure their sixth tournament appearance in the last seven years.
