Michigan Upsets No. 3 Wisconsin 77-70

MADISON, Wis. — Nik Stauskus scored 23 points and hit a key 3 with 48 seconds left, and Michigan fended off a late surge for a 77-70 win Saturday over No. 3 Wisconsin.

Caris LeVert added 20 for the Wolverines (13-4, 5-0 Big Ten), who held on for their first road win at Wisconsin since 1999 after nearly squandering a 15-point lead.

The Badgers (16-2, 3-2) went on a 14-2 run late, and Ben Brust’s putback got them within 68-67 with about two minutes left.

But after whiffing on a 3 from the right wing, Stauskus hit a step-back from 3 from the left side to give Michigan a 71-67 lead.

Josh Gasser had 16 points for the Badgers, which lost their second straight after a school-best 16-0 start.
