The final seconds of regulation between Michigan and Wisconsin on Saturday should get everyone ready for next month’s March Madness. After Jared Berggren tied the game for the Badgers at 57 with a big dunk, Michigan’s Tim Hardaway Jr. nailed a 3-point shot with 2.7 seconds left to put the Wolverines up, 60-57.
Enter Ben Brust:
Brust’s 40-foot prayer was answered, allowing Wisconsin to take the game into overtime, where the Badgers topped No. 3 Michigan, 65-62.
Also, Miami killed UNC, 87-61. The game featured an off-the-backboard assist by Shane Larkin to a dunking Kenny Kadji while ‘The U’ was already up 68-46.
Perhaps the flashy move was a tribute to Miami Heat stars LeBron James and Dwayne Wade, who took in the ACC game this afternoon. The Heat superstars get to keep their talents in South Beach this weekend, as they host both Los Angeles teams.

Could the Hurricanes jump from No. 8 to No. 1 this week? We’ll see.
