Jared Berggren’s dunk through traffic a pivotal part of Wisconsin’s upset of Michigan

The Dagger

Wisconsin big man Jared Berggren was a monster down the stretch in the Badgers' 65-62 upset over No. 3 Michigan. Berggren drove down the lane for a grown-man-And-1 jam to tie the game in the final 30 seconds of regulation, setting up a wild finish in which both teams hit long 3-pointers to send the game to overtime.

The dunk over Michigan guard Trey Burke was a play-of-the-day moment in a game filled with them. The 6-foot-10 senior also grabbed a crucial rebound in the final 30 seconds of overtime and challenged Burke's game-tying 3-pointer at the end of overtime enough that it might have caused Burke to miss.

Junior Ben Brust's unbelievable game-tying heave from near midcourt might overshadow Berggren's contributions in those final minutes, but they were an enormous part of the Badgers won and why Wisconsin was the site of another fun court-storming moment this season.

Brust led the Badgers with 14 points, playing 40 minutes. Berggren scored 13 and also grabbed eight rebounds.
