We've been victimized by Wisconsin twice now and once by Evan freakin Turner in the last 3(?) seasons. We're due for a big buzzer beater against a real opponent...anytime now would be nice

My son (Wisconsin '92) and I were at the game Saturday. Aside from the no-calls, M's shooting percentage, especially from three-point land (28%) was what did us in, IMO. Bucky turned the ball over 14 times. I don't know how many of those TOs M converted, but in a low-possession (>56) game, that many turnovers coupled with a couple more Stauskas or GRIII 3-pointers could have comfortably sealed the deal. M's defense was pretty good throughout the game (held W to .96 ppp) except for the last 2 seconds which we won't talk about.

After the game I would describe the attitude of the great majority of W fans as sheepish. I walked into a couple bars (the Nitty Gritty and Wando's) in all my M gear and, although each place was packed with happy fans, no one said much of anything to me. They knew damn well they stole a win and most seemed happy just to shut up about it.
