In one of the wildest games anyone has seen this season, the Wisconsin Badgers upset the No. 3 Michigan Wolverines 65-62 thanks to some clutch three-pointers from junior guard Ben Brust.

Neither team was able to pull away from the other for much of the game, but junior shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. nailed a three-pointer to give Michigan a lead with less than three seconds to play.

On the ensuing in-bound pass, Brust caught the ball near half-court, put the ball on the deck for a couple of steps and heaved a desperation shot at the basket, which hit nothing but net to send the game to overtime.

Brust, who finished with 14 points, nailed another trey in overtime to put the Badgers up by three points in the final minute of play, and sophomore point guard Trey Burke's attempt to tie the game as time expired rattled out.

Burke led all scorers with 19 points, and Hardaway Jr. chipped in 18 points.

The loss drops Michigan to 8-3 in the Big Ten and 21-3 overall, while Wisconsin improves to 8-3 in league play and 17-7 for the season.
