Video: Wisconsin's Ben Brust nails two clutch shots late to help Badgers upset Michigan

Wisconsin Badgers junior guard Ben Brust is definitely going to be the big man on campus Saturday night after coming up with two clutch shots against No. 3 Michigan.

The first came at the end of regulation as time expired to help send the game into overtime. Brust took the inbounds pass and proceeded to launch a prayer around mid-court, which just so happened to find the bottom of the net. Thus, sending the Wisconsin home crowd into shear joy.

Later, Brust nailed another three-point shot with under a minute to go in overtime, this time from closer range, to give the Badgers a lead. They would go on to win by a final score of 65-62 to pull off the improbable upset.

Yeah, what a day for Brust. He finished with 14 points, but six of them came in key moments. His game-winning shot can be seen around the 1:20 mark in the clip after the page break.
