Ben Brust hit a shot from just inside midcourt to tie the game at the end of regulation and added a tie-breaking 3 with less than 40 seconds left in overtime as Wisconsin beat No. 3 Michigan 65-62 on Saturday at Madison, Wis.

Brust scored 14 points for the Badgers (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten), while Jared Berggren added 13.

Trey Burke scored 19 points for Michigan (21-3, 8-3), while Tim Hardaway Jr. added 18.

Hardaway hit a contested 3-pointer to put the Wolverines up 65-52 with less than 3 seconds left in regulation. Brust collected the inbounds pass near halfcourt, took one dribble and hit a runner that touched nothing but net to tie the game.

Wisconsin and Michigan traded baskets in overtime before Brust hit the 3-pointer over Caris LeVert to put Wisconsin up 65-62 with less than 40 seconds left.

Hardaway couldn't connect on his drive to the hoop on the next Michigan possession, and Glenn Robinson III fouled Berggren on the rebound.

The Wolverines went to a full-court press with two more fouls to give. But the Badgers broke the press, and Michigan had to commit two more fouls to finally put Ryan Evans on the free throw line.

Evans, who shoots less than 43 percent from the line, missed the front end of a 1-and-1, and Burke couldn't connect in a rushed final possession for the Wolverines.
