The last time the Michigan basketball team played back-to-back overtime games was in 2000. They won both. Not this time. A desperation heave at the end of regulation by Wisconsin’s Ben Brust sent the game into overtime. Brust would then deliver another 3-point dagger at the end of the shot clock in overtime that proved to be the last bucket of the game, sending the Badgers to a 65-62 win over the #3 ranked Wolverines.
Tim Hardaway’s big game wasn’t enough
How They Lost
Fans will debate whether Michigan, who had 2 fouls to give at the end of regulation, should have been hacking. Before the ball was inbounded, maybe so. Once it’s in play with only 2.4 seconds on the clock you have to play defense and hope for the best. Brust was able to deliver a running, twisting, 45-foot miracle to keep Wisconsin alive. If it takes a shot like that to go in then there just isn’t much you can do.

MADISON, Wis. Next time members of Wisconsin's coaching staff have a question about Michigan point guard Trey Burke, they won't need to look far to find an answer. Badgers point guard Traevon Jackson likely can provide them with everything they need to know.
After all, the two spent nearly their entire high school careers playing together on the AAU circuit.
A win guarantees Michigan at least a share of the Big Ten lead while a loss makes Tuesday’s trip to East Lansing even more important.
