Wisconsin won in dramatic fashion thanks to Ben Brust... at least that's what the headlines will tell you. Yes, it's true Brust hit the game tying three pointer from just inside the halfcourt strie and yes it's true that Brust hit the game winning three pointer with 39.6 seconds remaining. 

However, when you hit the rewind button on this game there's a play that on any other night would've been the lead story and on Saturday afternoon it was a play that happened just 30 seconds earlier that even made it possible and it's a play equally as exciting as the buzzer-beater that sent the Kohl Center crowd into a frenzy. We are talking about Jared Berggren's posterization of one Trey Burke:

In fact, one could argue that the crowd was already in a frenzy because of this play. As you can see the Badgers were down by three before Berggren went all point-forward on McGary and the rest of the Wolverines. So, without this play the Badgers aren't in a position to even get a tie at the end of the game. Berggren stepped up, hit the free throw and made it 57-57 with 30 seconds left.

One has to wonder if it's Jared Berggren's personal mission to posterize every likely member of the All-Big Ten team. He's already got Victor Oladipo and Trey Burke off the list... Who's next? Well, it could be Rodney Williams or Dre Hollins as Minnesota is up next for Bucky.
