The Michigan Wolverines look to build from their wins over Ohio State as they visit Wisconsin this Saturday at 12 PM ET.
The 76-74 overtime for the Wolverines was a good showing from Tim Hardaway Jr., who hit 5 straight 3s. Hardaway also blocked the shot that could’ve sent the game to a second straight overtime.
“I saw the ball in my face, so I just tried to wrap it up,” Hardaway said. “Probably got his arm or something like that, but like I said, it’s up to the refs to call that call, and they let it go.”
“I thought Trey fouled him, and then I thought the whistle was going to blow, and then I just went for the ball,” Hardaway said.
“With that crowd right now, it was going to be tough to beat us today, even though we didn’t play our best,” said Michigan coach John Beilein, who was celebrating his 60th birthday. “With that crowd and this atmosphere, it was exciting to be the coach today.”
Wisconsin needed to overtimes to beat Iowa on Wednesday; so they might be compare of terms of legs and stamina for the weekend. Ben Brust scored 18 points and Jared Berggren added 16 points, and 14 rebounds for the Badgers; they snapped a three-game losing streak to the Iowa.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Michigan’s last 5 games when playing on the road against Wisconsin. Wisconsin is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games when playing Michigan.
