Here's what Mike Lucas thought of the Badgers' rally for an overtime victory last night against Minnesota.
The building wasn't as electric as it was last Thursday. The foe was not nearly as formidable as Purdue. But the UW rallied again from 7pt 2ndH deficit; this time over final 5:31 to get the game into OT where they dominated the Gophers, 14-4. Got timely stops. Made timely shots.— Mike Lucas (@LucasAtLarge) February 20, 2018
Little things made big difference. Happ's defense led to string of empty Minny poss. Iverson had key block & rebound off Murphy's missed FT. Ford had critical tapback to Pritzl off Iverson's missed FT to retain ball. Led to Happ's gametying FG. Pritzl took over OT with clutch 3's— Mike Lucas (@LucasAtLarge) February 20, 2018
Minny-UW postscript. Konate fouling out with 13sec left in reg was telling. Forced Diedhiou to check Ethan Happ who worked him right, left, right off dribble & muscled him out of defensive position. No help from Hurt, Murphy. Failing to foul Happ was critical before gm-tying shot— Mike Lucas (@LucasAtLarge) February 20, 2018
