It’s only the third of the year yet Wisconsin has three home losses this college basketball season. Seriously, when do the Badgers lose more than twice at the Kohl Center in an entire season? Let alone three times? No. 18 Wisconsin fell to 12-4 overall and 1-2 in the Big Ten with a 63-60, overtime loss to No. 10 Michigan State (14-2, 3-0) tonight. What a way for Tom Izzo to get his first ever win at the Kohl Center. The game appeared headed to double overtime after Ryan Evans’ 3-pointer at the buzzer of the first overtime. However, the play was reviewed, and it was determined by the officials that the ball was still in Evans’ hands as the clock hit zero. Now Evans will be known for something other his awful early ’90s Kid ‘n’ Play style haircut.

Controversial disallowed three preserves Michigan State win

It took a controversial reversed call by referees to enable 10th-ranked Michigan State to finally break its decade-long Kohl curse.
