Badgers survive scare from Wolverines

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoWinning the second time you play a team in the Big Ten is noeasy task. Wisconsin got its first taste of that this season Tuesday nightagainst Michigan in a back-and-forth conference slugfest.Despite running away with a 16-point victory in the teams?first meeting Jan. 2, the Badgers were given a much bigger fight this time bythe Wolverines and needed a late 3-pointer from forward Marcus Landry to escapewith a 64-61 win.?We just figured there?s going to be a lot of games likethis,? UW head coach Bo Ryan said. ?Earlier in the year [the Wolverines]weren?t moving like they?re moving now, and defensively not just in the zone,but the man-to-man ? they have more experience.?Wisconsin withstood 20 Michigan offensive rebounds and a26-point outburst from Wolverine freshman Manny Harris to win the type of gamethat they will need to continue their success.?Those are the games you?re going to have to win,? forwardJoe Krabbenhoft said. ?If you want to get ? I?m not even going to say it,?cause I don?t want to say ?Big Ten championship? or anything like that ? butif you want to get to that level, these are the games you?re going to have towin in the Big Ten.?With Wisconsin up one with just under a minute remaining,Harris drove the ball into the paint guarded by Trevon Hughes. Sinking in thelane to help his backcourt mate, Michael Flowers took a swipe at Harris?dribble and knocked the ball free. After a scrum, Krabbenhoft emerged with theball and called timeout.On the ensuing UW possession, Hughes played off a pick nearthe top of the key and drove toward the baseline. Finding his drive cut off, hepicked up his dribble, turned and found Landry open on the right wing for athree that the junior drilled to extend the lead to four.?I thought Trevon was going to come off the ball screen andshoot it, so I was ready to go to the glass,? Landry said. ?But I seen he keptdriving. ? He picked up his dribble and I was there to release him because hehad nowhere to go.?After having his shot blocked on the previous possession,Landry put the negative out of his mind for the game clincher.?I was kind of down; I couldn?t really get my shot off inthe paint like I wanted to,? Landry said. ?I forgot about it and got the opportunityto shoot the ball, and just shot it.?With Michigan trailing only by one at 40-39 and with theball coming out of a timeout with 14 minutes and 35 seconds remaining, Ryanmade a crucial substitution. In came center Greg Stiemsma, who didn?t play at allthe previous game against Northwestern and played just one minute in the firsthalf after picking up a quick foul and turnover.?I thought there was some stuff around the rim that heneeded to go in there and clean up for us,? Ryan said.The substitution paid instant dividends, as Stiemsmaspearheaded an 11-3 Wisconsin run ? capped by a Michael Flowers rebound andcoast-to-coast spinning layup ? that forced Michigan head coach John Beilein tocall a timeout.On Michigan?s first possession, Stiemsma emphatically turnedaway Epke Udoh?s attempt as the shot clock was winding down ? his first of twoblocks during the run ? and then rebounded the Wolverine?s subsequent miss.After Hughes buried a three to extend UW?s lead to four,Stiemsma stood his ground on the low block and took a charge from abaseline-driving Harris.Stiemsma would add some offense to the mix with a layup inthe paint to make it a six-point UW lead and another block two minutes later.?He came in in the first half and I don?t like saying it,but he had one foul and one turnover,? Krabbenhoft said. ?But then he forgotabout it, he kept playing and kept his head up.?He came in in the second half and had two huge blocks, ahuge layup, just a bunch of energy. That?s what we need from guys like Gregcoming in off the bench.?Wisconsin extended its lead to as many as 10 in the firsthalf, only to see Michigan slowly chip away at the margin and trail by onlyfour at the break. That set the stage for the rest of the back-and-forthaffair.last_img read more
