Wisconsin forces OT with crazy buzzer-beater

With Indiana losing to Illinois earlier in the week, Michigan could very easily have been the #1 team in the country with a win over Wisconsin today.  Wisconsin had other plans though.  With 3 seconds on the **** Michigan took a three point lead after a Hardaway Jr. three pointer.  The game looked pretty much over at the time before Ben Brust hit a crazy running buzzer beater...

Brust leading Badgers on the glass

MADISON, Wis. The reasons for Ben Brust's dramatic increase in rebounding totals this season aren't entirely clear. Maybe it's more assertiveness as an upperclassman. Perhaps it's a measure of toughness or simply being in the right place on the court. Brust, Wisconsin's 6-foot-1, 195-pound off-guard, doesn't know why he leads the Badgers in rebounds after...
