After leading for most of the game, seventh ranked Wisconsin needed five extra minutes to survive a scare from the Cornhuskers in Nebraska Thursday night. In overtime UW came from behind to win 70-69 with Ethan Happ providing two key defensive wins to preserve the win.
Nigel Hayes scored a game high 20 points including his only three-point basket of the night to keep Wisconsin’s winning streak alive. Wisconsin will next host Northwestern on Sunday.
