Wisconsin won its opening game in the NCAA tournament by 40 points on Thursday over American. So it makes sense the Badgers are feeling relaxed and confident heading into their third-round game against No. 7 seed Oregon tonight in the West region.

We got a feel for how comfortable the second-seeded Badgers are from an Instagram video that shows junior guard Traevon Jackson surprising junior 7-footer Frank Kaminsky in the locker room after practice. Wisconsin is trying to advance to the Sweet 16 for the third time in four years.

If they fall short, it's doubtful it will be because they were overstressed by the pressure of the situation.
