We’re only on Day 1 of March, and the Madness has arrived.
A bevy of upsets arose Tuesday, including No. 10 Wisconsin (24–5, 15–4 in Big Ten) landing a 70–67 victory against No. 8 Purdue (24–6, 13–6) at the Kohl Center.
Badgers guard Johnny Davis converted on a jumper to put Wisconsin up 67–64 with 28 seconds remaining in the game. Then, a three-pointer from Purdue’s Jaden Ivey tied the game at 67.
But with eight seconds to play, Chucky Hepburn dribbled the ball down the left sideline before taking a step back and banking in a game-winning three-pointer to give the Badgers the win and a share of the Big Ten regular-season championship.
Purdue, which entered Tuesday’s game coming off a 68–65 late-game loss to Michigan State on Saturday, now sits third in the Big Ten standings behind Wisconsin and Illinois.
