NCAA Basketball: Pac-12 Conference Tournament Final-Oregon vs Washington Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The Wisconsin Badgers return to the NCAA Tournament once again, but they will face a team on a hot streak in the Oregon Ducks during a 5-12 South region matchup in San Jose on Friday.

Oregon (23-12) finished its conference schedule with a 10-8 record but won eight straight games—including four on way to capturing the Pac-12 Tournament championship. The Ducks dominated top-seeded Washington in a 68-48 win on Saturday to lock down a berth in the NCAA tournament.

Dana Altman’s team also holds 5-1 in neutral site games.
