(MADISON, Wis.) — Wolverines must not be welcome in Madison.
Wisconsin guard Ben Brust nailed a shot just past halfcourt as time expired in regulation, sending the game into overtime. From there the Badgers were just a little better as they knocked off third-ranked Michigan 65-62, Saturday.
Michigan has now lost 11 straight in Madison.
The game was almost Michigans. With 2.4 seconds left in regulation, Tim Hardaway Jr. hit a contested 3-pointer to give the Wolverines a 65-62 lead. Wisconsin called a timeout and Mike Bruesewitz inbounded the ball to Brust. Brust took one dribble before heaving the game saving shot.
“It was awesome, something I’ll remember forever, and I’m sure a lot of people will,” Brust said of his game tying shot.
Brust continued his shot making in overtime. With just under 40 seconds left in the extra period, Brust knocked down what proved to be the game winning three.
Michigan (21-3, 8-3 Big Ten) received 19 points from sophomore guard Trey Burke in the loss.
Wisconsin (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten) and Michigan State are now tied for second in the Big Ten.
The Wolverines become the third team ranked in the top three to lose this week.
