OR received 14 points, two pulls and two assists from Paul White followed Will Richardson who chipped in with eight points and snagged three boards.

UC Irvine defeated No. 5 seed Kansas State, 70-64, and has won 17 straight. Wisconsin got 12 points apiece from Ethan Happ and Khalil Iverson.

Both University of Oregon Basketball teams are moving on to the second round of their NCAA tournaments.

Time For US To Fully Recognise Israel Sovereignty In Golan Heights
But little more than a statement from the president or secretary of state is necessary to secure the major US policy shift. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is in Jerusalem, lauding warm ties with Israel and promising to step up pressure on Iran.

OR went to the Elite Eight for the second straight year last season but fell to eventual champion Notre Dame. 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.

All that being said, Wisconsin has made it to this point for reason and still has the potential for a deep run in the Dance if a few more cogs start to click again. OR led 46-37 with 12:39 to go. Offensively, Wisconsin scores just 69.1 points per game while shooting 45.3 percent from the field. Irvine is probably still celebrating its win over K-State, while OR is looking for bigger things. After a three-game losing streak in February, the Ducks ripped off eight straight wins, including four in a row to win the Pac-12 tournament and steal an automatic berth to the NCAA Tourney.

"It showed everybody today, it wasn't a fluke", Payton Pritchard, who scored 19 points, said after the Badgers win.

TEXAS TECH 72, N. KENTUCKY 57: Jarrett Culver had 29 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to help No. 3 seed Texas Tech (27-6) defeat No. 14 seed Northern Kentucky (26-9) at Tulsa.

"Honestly I just felt it", Sabally said about the rebounds. "So they were trying to force me to take it out and have other guys make plays".

If the Badgers are going to have a successful NCAA Tournament run they will need one man to carry the load. For the first time in the shot clock era (1985-86 to present), the Ducks held six consecutive opponents to less than 62 points - Arizona State (51), Arizona (47), Washington State (61), Washington (47), WSU (51) and Utah (54).

European Union impatient with Brexit, but resigned to delay
