"You feel like you kind of let people down". Wisconsin ended up almost dribbling out the clock before Brad Davison hoisted an off balance 3-point attempt as time expired.
"This group kept persevering and battling and getting better", Wisconsin coach Greg Gard said. "It's just unfortunate we didn't turn it around sooner". An early 11-0 run gave the Wolverines a 16-9 lead and they never looked back. Maryland tightened up the score in the waning minutes though, tying the game with four minutes, 18 seconds left on Kevin Huerter's late game efforts, who scored 14 points on five for eight shooting in the second half.
Michigan State's Winston thought it was an advantage preparing for a team in the conference tournament the Spartans had just played on Sunday.
In the words of Michigan coach Mel Pearson, Michigan got outplayed Friday night in game one of the Big Ten Tournament versus Wisconsin.
For the second time in six days, Wisconsin pushed the Spartans to the limit. But Friday it lost to Michigan State for the third time this season.
"I personally figure we just have to string together an entire game for 40 minutes and just staying toe to toe with them like we did last game", Iverson said.
With or without Happ, the key to next season will be continued development of the returning players, starting with Davison, Pritzl and Khalil Iverson, who stepped up their games late in the season.
Wisconsin was outscored 16-8 after Happ left the game.
Bridges and Cassius Winston got the scoring going for Michigan State after the break, eventually extending the lead to 38-32.
The outcome also might have been different if the Badgers did a better job of rebounding.
The Spartans struggled to find a rhythm on offense in the first half. Wisconsin's defensive rebounding percentage after halftime was an abysmal 35.0 percent. "But we're just going to wait this week and see what happens".
The Badgers began the second half on a 7-2 run to take a seven-point lead early in the half, but the two teams traded punches the rest of the way.
Ethan Happ pulled the Badgers pulled to within two at 58-56 with 3:41 to go, but Wisconsin couldn't get any rebounds as the Spartans settled for and miss jumpers before Jackson scored on a stick back with 3:14 remaining and a 60-56 lead. They had a chance to tie the game in the final seconds, but Dion Wiley threw it away. The backup plan was Davison hitting Happ for a quick two-point basket after a slip screen.
Michigan State has the nation's longest active Division I winning streak. Mere feet from the spot where, last March, Zak Showalter hit a running, one-legged 3-pointer to send the Badgers into overtime against Florida, the freshman's attempt was not graced by the same stroke of luck. The Cornhuskers were not as good defending the three as they were in the earlier matchup this year when they held MI to only 4 of 18 from threes. "They hadn't really been switching anything".
Wisconsin will have some momentum after making clutch plays against the Terrapins.
There's nothing more for this underperforming team to do but go home.
Calderone's goals bookended strikes by Jake Slaker and Quinn Hughes for the Wolverines, who were 1-for-12 on the man advantage in their final four Big Ten regular-season games.
MAAR finished this game as the high-scorer for the team with 21 points.
"They do a lot of the little things that you need to do to have success", Pearson said. I am a diehard MI fan that lives in North Carolina.
