Josh Gasser - Men's Basketball
Buzzer-beating 3-pointer for win at Michigan (Feb. 23)

The 12th-ranked Wisconsin men's basketball team had plenty of time for a final shot, and logic said the Badgers would keep the ball in the hot hand of junior Jordan Taylor. When Michigan double-teamed Taylor, however, the stage was set for a heroic heave from Josh Gasser. The freshman responded by banking in a last-gasp 3-pointer that hit glass before splashing through the net as time expired on a 53-52 win over the Wolverines. The shot gave UW its 10th-straight win over Michigan and helped the Badgers secure a third-place finish in the Big Ten standings.
