Michigan was leading Wisconsin 60-57 on Saturday when Ben Brust got a perfect inbound pass from Mike Bruesewitz, took one dribble across halfcourt and connected for the tying 3-pointer as time expired in regulation. Brust added another big 3-pointer in overtime to lead the Badgers to a 65-62 victory.
“It was awesome, something I’ll remember forever, and I’m sure a lot of people will,” Brust said.
The Wolverines will need to forget this one in a hurry. They face rival Michigan State in East Lansing on Tuesday night.
The fifth-ranked Jayhawks also are looking at a quick turnaround after a 72-66 loss at Oklahoma on Saturday made it a three-game slide for the storied program for the first time in eight years. They host No. 13 Kansas State on Monday.
“It hasn’t been a good week for us by any stretch, but let’s be real,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “We were ranked No. 2 in the country seven days ago, and you don’t go from being a good team to a bad team overnight.
“We’ve had a couple of bad outings, but we’re still a good team.”
