Notes: The Badgers improved to 4-4 vs. teams ranked in the AP Top 25 this season, including a 4-2 mark against ranked Big Ten teams. That ties UW with Indiana and Syracuse for the most wins over top 25 opponents this season ... Ben Brust’s buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of regulation marked the 18th time in UW history a player has hit a buzzer-beater in a Badgers win. It was the third buzzer-beater in school history that forced overtime and led to a win ... UW has won 6 of its last 7 home games vs. teams ranked in the top five of the Associated Press poll, dating back to an 89-75 win over No. 2 Pitt on Dec. 16, 2006.
