WATCH: Wisconsin-Michigan Thriller Featured Plenty Of BIG Shots
Huffington Post Sports - about 4 years
Michigan learned the hard way that space is the last thing that you give Wisconsin's Ben Brust after the junior guard drained an improbable three-pointer from near midcourt to force overtime and later the game-winner in the extra session. “I did expect him to be a little bit closer,” Brust told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel of Michigan's Caris LeVert, who defended him on the final play of the second half. “I thought I was going to have to go by him." “But I enough space. I shot it with confidence and it went down.” While the game-tying, buzzer-beating three-pointer by Brust may have been the most remarkable bucket from Wisconsin's 65-62 win over No. 3 Michigan on Saturday it was hardly the only big time bucket in the thrilling Big Ten tilt. With the teams separated by just a point at the intermission and neither team holding a lead greater than six points in the second half, every basket was crucial. But the pressure on the floor at the Kohl Center increased as th ...

Wisconsin Coach Bo Ryan Had A Disastrous ESPN Radio Interview This Morning
Sports Grid - almost 5 years
A controversy has erupted over the past few days around Wisconsin basketball – specifically, the way coach Bo Ryan is severely restricting the number of schools to which Jarrod Uthoff, a freshman who redshirted this past season, can transfer. There are many players like Uthoff, who decide a school just isn’t the right fit for them and want to go somewhere else. And Ryan allowed him to transfer – but put many, many limitations on it. The rest of the Big Ten? Off limits. Marquette? Off limits. Iowa State? For some reason, off limits. Every school in the ACC? For reasons not quite clear to anyone but Ryan, off limits. There are also many coaches like Ryan, who’ve placed restrictions on players’ transfers. Ryan, though, took it to another level by blocking two dozen potential destinations for Uthoff – and it’s not like these were unrealistic options for him; he originally chose Wisconsin over many, many other scholarship offers. And Ryan’s getting ripped pretty robustly for his con ...

Michigan Basketball: Mark Donnal stats and highlights
isports web - almost 5 years
Michigan Basketball commit Mark Donnal (Whitehouse, Ohio) enjoyed a stellar junior season, averaging around 19 points and 10 boards per game. Donnal is a 6-foot-9, 215 pound power forward who can fill it up from inside the paint and beyond the arc. He is a humble, hard working kid who will be an excellent addition to the Michigan Basketball program. Donnal was named to the All-Ohio Third Team by the Associated Press. ESPNU ranks Donnal as the 25th best power forward in the 2012 class. Donnal’s AAU coach is Dan Dakich and he declared on Twitter that Michigan “got a great one” when Donnal committed. Here is a recent Mark Donnal highlight video Donnal is part of a very strong 2013 recruiting class for John Beilein and the Wolverines. He is joined by fellow commits Zak Irvin, Derrick Walton and Austin Hatch (who will likely reclassify to 2014). You can follow me on Twitter @isportsRob
