Hope you all got some sleep last night -- that game was incredible. These are the highlights from UWBadgers.com, matched with radio highlights from the great Matt Lepay.
From Parker's recap:
Ben Brust kept saying that as long as the Badgers were playing good basketball and winning games, the all-time school record for made threes would come as a natural by-product.
He never said the gym had to stay quiet when the moment arrived.
After Wisconsin trailed most of the game, the Hawthorn Woods, Ill., native hit the 228th three of his career -- one more than Tim Locum made between 1988 and 1991 -- with 1:07 remaining to give the Badgers a two-point lead over Oregon that it would not relinquish. Eight free throws later, UW locked down a berth in the Sweet 16 with an 85-77 win.
Brust's take on the moment: "As soon as I let it go, I knew it was going down."
In the locker room after the game, UW coaches and players came to a consensus about two things. First, that the 18,206 fans that packed the Bradley Center were as loud and powerful as anybody could remember, and second, that nobody doubted Brust would find a way.
Parker also has more on Brust in his sidebar, as the senior guard finally broke Wisconsin's all-time three-point record with his 4-of-8 game from deep last night.
