Wisconsin-Michigan St. Preview 2-16-12

(AP) — The last time Michigan State and Wisconsin met, the Spartans ended a long road losing streak in the series with a controversial victory.

The 15th-ranked Badgers hope to return the favor Thursday night as they seek their first win in East Lansing in nearly eight years in a rematch with No. 7 Michigan State, which is coming off its biggest victory of the season.

Ryan Evans appeared to hit a tying 3-pointer as the overtime buzzer sounded Jan. 3 at the Kohl Center, but officials declared the shot late after video review to give the Spartans a 63-60 victory, ending an eight-game skid in Madison.

    There was absolutely nothing controversial about that call. The time had expired before the ball left his hands. What WAS controversial is why the Kohl Center has two clocks that aren’t in sync! Also, everytime I hear about this controversial call I would like the reporter to mention the MSU-UW game at Breslin when Kelvin Torbert hit a game-tying 3 pointer and it was waived off to end MSU’s 53 game home winning streak. No one seems to remember that, especially Bo!
