Oregon Ducks upset Wisconsin Badgers

SAN JOSE — Payton Pritchard, the driving force behind Oregon’s eight-game win streak entering the NCAA tournament, didn’t back down on the big stage Friday.

Pritchard had 19 points, eight assists and five rebounds as the 12th-seeded Ducks beat No. 5 Wisconsin 72-54 victory in a South Region game at SAP Center.

The Ducks (24-12) avenged NCAA losses to the Badgers (23-11) in 2014 and 2015 in their return to the tournament after missing out a year ago for the first time in six seasons.
