The Wisconsin Badgers once promising season is over after a 72-54 loss to Oregon in the first round of the N-C-A-A Tournament Friday in San Jose.
The game was tied at 25 at halftime before the 12th-seeded Ducks outscored the fifth-seed Badgers 47-29 in the second half. Ethan Happ and Khalil Iverson led Wisconsin's offense with 14 points each. The Oregon defense held U-W to 33-percent shooting and the Badgers went just six-for-30 from three-point range. This was the Duck's ninth straight victory. They will face U-C Irvine in the second round Sunday.
