Ridiculous finish to a great game. This just shows the win at Michigan was a quality win for the Bucks. I know Michigan doesn't have the best record with 12 losses overall, but look at some of the losses:

Lost by 3 to #10 Syracuse
Lost by 7 in OT to #3 Kansas
Lost by 4 @#2 OSU
Lost by 5 to then # 19 Minnesota
Lost by 9 to #2 OSU
Lost by 2 @ Illinois
Lost by 1 on a buzzer beater last night to #12 Wisky

Half of their losses were to ranked teams. 5 of their losses were to teams that are currently in the top 17 in the country. If they could win the last two games, one being at the barn on the road vs. Minnesota, and win a second time versus MSU, they have a good shot at making the tourney. That would put them at 19-12 overall and 9-9 in the Big Ten.

I love how when OSU goes into Ann Arbor and beats Michigan it's not considered a good win. But when Kenasas loses badly at Kansas State it's ok because it's a "rivalry game". That is the point of this post. Kansas State has a better overall record, but they didn't do anything OOC and are in a weaker conference. Their two key matchups OOC were against Duke and Florida. Duke was a home game for them and they lost by 14. Florida was a home game and they lost by 13. And their only "tough" road conference games were against Mizzou, aTm, and Kansas. They lost those games by 16, 8, and 24 respectively. Pretty bad. And they still have to go to Texas where I will be putting my money on Texas covering whatever ungodly spread they put out.
