Michigan-Wisconsin Preview 3-15-13
(AP) — Ben Brust said he will remember forever his improbable heave in Wisconsin’s victory over Michigan last month.
The Wolverines haven’t forgotten about it, either.
The 22nd-ranked and fourth-seeded Badgers seek a 12th victory in the last 13 meetings with No. 6 and fifth-seeded Michigan on Friday in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament in Chicago.
After Tim Hardaway Jr.’s 3-pointer with three seconds left in regulation put Michigan ahead 60-57 on Feb. 9 in Madison, Brust caught a pass from Mike Bruesewitz and hit a running half-court shot as the buzzer sounded to send the game into overtime.
Brust then broke another tie with 40 seconds remaining in the extra session, helping Wisconsin (21-10) earn a 65-62 victory in the only meeting between the teams this season.
