MILWAUKEE - A packed house of raucous Wisconsin fans helped the Badgers hold off an athletic Oregon Ducks team in an 85-77 win Saturday night that put Wisconsin in the Sweet 16.
Frank Kaminsky scored 19 points, including a go-ahead bucket that erased a 14 point Oregon lead. Ben Brust hit a three pointer with a minute to play, giving Wisconsin the lead for good and becoming the program's all-time leader in three pointers in the process.
The Badgers will play in Anaheim in the Sweet 16 Thursday against the winner of Sunday's Baylor vs. Creighton game.
