This season, the Wisconsin Badgers have been involved in a close game what feels like every night they step on the hardwood. Naturally, in games that go down to the final buzzer, a hero has to emerge.
For three consecutive Big Ten games, Wisconsin went to overtime, but that was only a sample size of the down-to-the-wire battles the Badgers fought this season. Even though they have hit a bump in the road to close out conference play, the Badgers defense has kept them in just about every game, putting players in a situation where they have the opportunity to send their fans home happy.
There's no question Wisconsin needs to regain its touch from outside and shoot better overall as a team for that elite defense to matter, but it is bound to find itself in at least one more nail-biter before the curtains close on the 2012-13 season.
As far as who will have the ball in their hands as the final seconds tick, let's rank who will be the most likely to play the role of hero this March.
