The Badgers tournament run ended in stunning fashion Friday night at the hands of the Florida Gators.
With 4 seconds left in overtime, Chris Chiozza took off, hoping to get to the hoop or find an open man. Instead, the Florida point guard stopped short right at the 3-point line and let fly with a shot that will go down in Gators’ history.
Chiozza’s 3-pointer swished in at the buzzer in to give Florida an 84-83 victory against Wisconsin on Friday night in the first overtime game of this NCAA Tournament.
Nigel Hayes had given the Badgers (27-10) a 2-point lead with 4 seconds left on two free throws. With no timeouts left, the Gators inbounded to Chiozza and he took care of the rest for Florida (27-8), setting off a celebration under the basket at Madison Square Garden.
