PLAYERS: Trey Burke
TEAMS:
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. Michigan (21-3, 8-3) fell at the hands of a Josh Gasser buzzer-beater 2 years ago at Crisler and experienced a nearly similar fate this afternoon. Trey Burke’s fade away 3 as the game clock was running down rimmed out, ala Arkansas last year, and Ohio State this year, and Michigan dropped their 3rd game of the season. Brust led Wisconsin (17-7, 8-3) with 14 points and kept Michigan from winning at the Kohl Center for the first time since 1999. Michigan held a 1-point lead at the half and battled hard against an always scrappy Badgers squad on their home floor. The loss marks the 3rd time Michigan has lost a road Big Ten game against a quality opponent. Michigan’s 3 Stars Tim Hardaway, Jr. – TH2 had another big game shooting the basketball, including what could have been the game-winner. Burke takes most of the end of clock situational shots for Michigan but this time Hardaway came across the top of the key, raised up and buried the big shot near the end of regulation. He was 8-17 from the floor (2-3 from deep) for 18 points. He also had 4 boards and 3 assists. Trey Burke – He had to earn his keep today against an engaged Wisconsin defense. A lot of his shots came by way of pump fakes and step backs as he worked to get free. In the end, he was 8-21 shooting but just 2-8 from 3-point range. He finished with a game-high 19 points and added 5 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals. Mitch McGary – McGary finished with 12 points and 8 rebounds while shooting 6-10 from the field. Perhaps most impressive were the 3 jumpers that he knocked down. As his confidence builds so does his all-around game. McGary blew a big layup in overtime that could have been a difference-maker. He added 3 more steals and a block to his stat line. News and Notes Michigan shot just 28-71 (39.4%) and 5-18 (27.8%) from three. The Badgers shot 25-57 (43.9%) and 10-24 (41.7%). The Wolverines attempted just 2 free throws. The Badgers shot 10. Michigan owned the turnover battle, 6-14. Nik Stauskas scored just 5 points and hasn’t had much success in Michigan’s 3 road losses. Stauskas did have 7 tough rebounds on the afternoon though. Glenn Robinson III has gone from being a model of efficiency to almost unnoticed over his last 3 games. He has managed just 16 points over that stretch while shooting 6-20 from the floor. If he is going to be on the court for 35+ minutes like he always is, he has to find a way to contribute. When Ryan Evans bricked the front end of a 1 and 1 that gave Michigan a shot to tie it at the end of overtime, he got to the line via what appeared to be Hardaway’s 5th foul. It was confirmed after the game that an earlier call on Hardaway had been switched to Robinson. Up Next Michigan will end a hellacious 4-game stretch on Tuesday night at the Breslin Center against the #12 ranked Michigan State Spartans (19-4, 8-2). Tip is set for 9 pm and the game will be televised on ESPN.
