Michigan State Drops Wisconsin in Dramatic Fashion

It wasn't the most compelling of games until the end. The Badgers and Spartans played forty minutes of slow-paced ball to send it into overtime. The Spartans then managed to open up a six point lead with less than twenty seconds left in OT. Jordan Taylor hit a long three and Draymond Green missed two free throws to give the Badgers a chance. Ryan Evans got a rebound on the final play, ran out behind the three-point line and banked it in. The officials called it good on the court, but went to the replay to make sure it was the right call.

It wasn't. There was a discrepancy between the clock on top of the backboard and the larger one in the arena, with the backboard clock hitting 0.0 while the ball was still in Evans' hands. The lights behind the backboard were clearly lit up before he got rid of it, and that clock has the final say.

This was Wisconsin's second home loss in a row, and it was Tom Izzo's first win in the Kohl Center against Bo Ryan.

The Badgers are either going to have to start hitting more threes or stop taking so many. They are behind the eight ball in the conference race with their two home losses.

MSU is on a roll after losing to ACC powerhouses North Carolina and Duke to start the season. So far in conference play they have beaten both Indiana and Wisconsin.
