Nigel Hayes Hits Clutch Layup vs. Villanova

Rivea RuffContributorMarch 18, 2017

The madness is here.

Wisconsin forward Nigel Hayes played the role of hero in Saturday's second-round NCAA tournament game against No. 1 overall seed Villanova by hitting a contested layup with 11.4 seconds remaining to put his team up two.

Hayes' clutch shot helped push Wisconsin to a 65-62 victory and sent the Badgers on to the Sweet 16, where they'll either face Virginia or Florida next Friday.
