Last Second Shot Gives Badger Men Third Straight Loss

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Kansas City, MO)  —  Aaron Holiday scores on a drive to the basket with nine tenths of a second left to give 23rd ranked UCLA a 72-70 win against Wisconsin at the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City. Coach Greg Gard said it was unacceptable for his Badgers to commit three turnovers in their final eight possessions as the UW blew a six point lead down the stretch and a 12 point edge from late in the first half. Holiday, meanwhile, scored ten of his team high 18 points in the final three minutes as UCLA improved to 4-1. Ethan Happ had 19 points and nine rebounds to lead the Badgers. D’Mitrik Trice, Khalil Iverson, and freshman Brad Davison had 14 apiece as the U-W lost its third straight all to ranked teams. Wisconsin finished last in a four team tournament held in conjunction with former Badger coach Bo Ryan’s induction into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.
