Wisconsin knocks off No. 3 Michigan in OT
Madison, WI (Sports Network) - Ben Brust tied the game with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer, then hit the game-winning shot in overtime as Wisconsin pulled off the upset with a 65-62 win over No. 3 Michigan on Saturday.
Brust finished with four 3-pointers as part of a 14-point game, while Jared Berggren added 13 points and eight rebounds and Sam Dekker had 12 points and five rebounds for the Badgers (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten), who have won three straight.
Trey Burke had 19 points and five rebounds while Tim Hardaway Jr. posted 18 points for the Wolverines (21-3, 8-3), who were coming off an overtime win against Ohio State on Tuesday.
Michigan had thought it put the nail in the coffin when Hardaway hit a 3- pointer with 2.4 ticks on the clock, but Brust put up a desperation shot from just past mid-court that hit nothing but net as the game went to overtime.
The first four minutes of the extra session saw a bit of a scoring drought as each team made just one bucket, but Brust put his team ahead with a 3-ball from the right of the arc with 43 seconds showing.
Hardaway missed a jumper at the other end, but Ryan Evans missed a free throw with 13 seconds to play.
Michigan quickly got down the court and Burke let fly with a 3-pointer, but it rimmed out as time ran out and fans stormed the court.
An 8-0 run by the Badgers in the latter stages of the first half put the team up 23-14 after Evans put in a layup with under eight minutes to play, but the Wolverines closed the half with a 13-4 run to give the team a 29-28 lead at the break.
The largest advantage of the second half was when Hardaway put in a jumper to give Michigan a 55-49 advantage, but Dekker followed with a 3-pointer and it remained a one-possession game the rest of the way.
Michigan plays at Michigan State on Tuesday ... Wisconsin plays at Minnesota on Thursday ... The Wolverines still lead the series, 87-68 ... Wisconsin shot 43.9 percent, but committed 14 turnovers ... Michigan made 39.4 percent of its shots.
