MADISON, Wis. — When Ben Brust tied the game at the end of regulation with a shot from just inside midcourt, his teammate Mike Bruesewitz looked over at Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan and saw something unusual.
His coach had both his arms in the air.
“You know when he shows some emotion, you’ve done something pretty special," Bruesewitz said.
Brust hit a tie-breaking 3-pointer with less than 40 seconds left in overtime as Wisconsin beat No. 3 Michigan 65-62 on Saturday.
“It was awesome, something I’ll remember forever, and I’m sure a lot of people will," Brust said of the game, which ended with students storming the court and Bruesewitz taking the public address announcer’s microphone to thank the crowd as students celebrated around him.
The Wolverines became the third top three team to lose this week as No. 1 Indiana lost to Illinois and No. 2 Florida was beaten by Arkansas. This should be the sixth straight week with a different No. 1 in The Associated Press’ Top 25.
Brust’s shot at the end of regulation was a dramatic turn of events for Wisconsin (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten) and a soul crusher for Michigan (21-3, 8-3).
