On Friday afternoon the Wisconsin Badgers and Oregon Ducks took the floor in a Round of 64 matchup. The Badgers entered the contest as a slight 1.5-point favorite, despite being the much higher seed.

Oregon was one of the most-picked upsets in the bracket. After 20 minutes of play, the two teams reached a stalemate at 25 heading into the half.

In the second half, Oregon's athleticism has been on full display. The Ducks have outclassed the Badgers on the boards and are seemingly blocking every shot that goes up from a Wisconsin player.

A former Badgers star called out his own team on Twitter for their lack of athleticism.

Former Wisconsin basketball player Sam Dekker said: "Gotta have athletes."

The second half hasn't been kind to Wisconsin, who looks like a mid-major going up against elite competition.

Oregon went on a 10-2 run in just over three minutes to take a 63-49 lead with just under three minutes left in the game.

The Ducks used their athleticism to block five shots and used a hot shooting streak from beyond the arc to pull away late.

Oregon will take on UC Irvine, who knocked off Kansas State to secure a spot in the Round of 32.
