Notebook: Brust makes historic 3 at best possible moment for Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE -- Ben Brust just doesn't want to take the Wisconsin uniform off for the final time. With his team down 12 at halftime, the senior told himself he had to do whatever it takes to keep playing.

Wisconsin Basketball: Badgers have the elements of a Final Four team

In exactly one month from now, the first round of the 2014 NCAA tournament will kick off. I know it may seem a little early to be predicting a team’s fate, but after the past week, you have to wonder how far can this Wisconsin team go.

MADISON, Wis. -- Ben Brust is drawing a diagram of his slanted driveway in the Chicago suburbs, trying to explain where the origin of his spectacular shooting range began.
