OR vs. Wisconsin - 3/22/19 NCAA March Madness Pick, Odds, and Prediction

May JohnsonMar 25, 2019

Oregon's 18-point win goes down as the third-largest margin for a No. 12 seed in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

"Everybody doubted us. People gave up on us", Pritchard said Saturday in a post game ESPN interview. "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". "We are here to win it".

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

UC Irvine (31-5) got back-to-back 3-pointers from Evan Leonard to spark the deciding run in an upset over Kansas State (25-9) at San Jose - the Anteaters' first NCAA tournament win in school history.

Pritchard led the Ducks with 19 points and eight assists, King added 17 points and Paul White scored all 14 of his points in the second half. "That's what they're doing right now".

Offensively, Happ had a modest day for himself with 12 points and eight rebounds, but the offense shot just 33% for the game as a team, and 20% from long range. After allowing UCLA to score 62 points in the second half, the Ducks held their next six opponents to less than 62 points for the entire game.

Earlier, the president tweeted that "Democrat" UAW Local 1112 President David Green "ought to get his act together and produce". The Congressman also called on other automakers to move into the plant if GM doesn't bring a new product there.

Sabally collected 14 points and six rebounds in the first half as OR built a 43-23 lead by the break. Wooten then put the exclamation point on the victory with two blocks on one trip before Pritchard's layup made it 59-47 and the rout was on.

This is Oregon's sixth NCAA Tournament appearance in the last seven years, and overall it is the Ducks' ninth straight postseason appearance.

Nearly everyone out on the West Coast agreed when the season began: The Oregon Ducks were probably the team to beat in the Pac-12 Conference. Those numbers are even more impressive when you consider the Ducks lost 7-foot-2 Bol Bol (21.0 ppg, 9.6 rpg) for the season in December.

Wisconsin: Happ returned for his senior season in part to get the Badgers back to the tournament after their 19-year streak ended with a losing record last year. He averaged 17.1 points, 10.1 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game to lead Wisconsin.

What the outcome of this contest will come down to in the end is which side finds a way to poke holes in the opposing defense just enough to string together a run or two.
