OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Top-seeded Wisconsin and No. 8 Oregon will meet Sunday in a round-of-32 rematch at the NCAA Tournament.

Last year the Ducks squandered a double-digit, second-half lead and lost 85-77 to Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Sunday's winner in Omaha goes to the Sweet 16 in Los Angeles.

The rematch was set up Friday night after Wisconsin (32-3) defeated Coastal Carolina 86-72. Earlier, Oregon (26-9) beat Oklahoma State 79-73.

Oregon faces a tall task going against the front line of 7-footer Frank Kaminsky, the 6-9 Sam Dekker and 6-8 Nigel Hayes. Freshman Jordan Bell, at 6-9, is the only Oregon starter bigger than 6-6, and he expects to spend much of his time trying to guard Kaminsky.
