Here's what Mike Lucas had to say about Wisconsin's tough 69-64 victory over Northwestern on Saturday night.
"Sometimes a little luck with a lot of timing is unbeatable combination. Brad Davison scored on short corner jumper with the ball kissing the rim 3 times before dropping through the net for 65-62 lead. Later he came through with 2 cold-blooded FTs with 8.9 left. Timely playmaking"
"Aleem Ford had gone scoreless 7 of last 8 gms before finally finding range with a couple of 2ndH triples burning Cats for digging down on Ethan Happ. D’Mitrik Trice also got back into 3pt rhythm (4of9) & matched Happ’s 14pts. Khalil Iverson unsung contributor again (11pts,5 rebs)"
