OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Big Ten player of the year Frank Kaminsky had 27 points and 12 rebounds for his 12th double-double of the season, and No. 1 seed Wisconsin defeated Coastal Carolina 86-72 in the NCAA Tournament on Friday night.

Sam Dekker had 20 points and Nigel Hayes added 15 against a Coastal Carolina team that gave a game effort but had no answer for the 7-foot Kaminsky or, for that matter, any of his hulking teammates.

Wisconsin (32-3), the Big Ten's regular-season and tournament champion, will play eighth-seeded Oregon on Sunday in a round-of-32 rematch. Last year the Badgers, on their way to the Final Four, beat the Ducks 85-77 to reach the Sweet 16.

Coastal Carolina (24-10), which starts no one over 6-7, got 22 points from Warren Gillis, 20 from Elijah Wilson and 11 from Josh Cameron.

The Badgers outscored the Chanticleers 40-24 in the lane and outrebounded them 36-25.
