Badgers roll over Baylor in Sweet 16 round 69-52

Final Score: Wisconsin 69, Baylor 52

Anaheim, CA (WSAU-TSN) -- Bo Ryan may have his most offensively gifted team yet. 

The defense is still there too.

Wisconsin's crisp ball movement and passing picked apart Baylor's zone and the Badgers' third Sweet 16 appearance in the last four years finally resulted in a win.

Frank Kaminsky had 19 points and six blocks and Wisconsin routed Baylor, 69-52, in a West Region semifinal from Anaheim.

Second-seeded Wisconsin, which hasn't reached a Regional Final since 2005, hasn't made the Final Four during Ryan's tenure since he took over the program in 2001.

It'll get a shot Saturday against Arizona Saturday in Anaheim.

Ben Brust tallied 14 points and six rebounds, while Nigel Hayes added 10 points and six boards for the Badgers, who tallied 18 assists on 26 made field goals (26-of-50).

The Badgers are getting exceptional production down low.  UW owned a 36-24 edge on points in the paint against Baylor, and they own a 92-54 edge overall in the lane during NCAA tourney.
