Here's what Mike Lucas had to say about Wisconsin's thrilling upset of Michigan at the Kohl Center on Saturday, 64-54.
"With rare exception the Badgers won 50-50’s, the hustle plays are always key ingredient in the recipe for an upset. Ethan Happ set that tone on the defensive end by diving on the floor for a loose ball and calling a timeout. Building erupted and it led to critical 2ndH sequence"
"UW’s aggressiveness/scrappiness on defense forced Michigan into uncharacteristic turnovers (16). Also made it uncomfortable for Brazdeikis and Matthews (combined 2-of-10, 5 points). As a whole, the Badgers were more connected defensively than a team that has prided itself on that"
