How about these wild Big Ten finishes?

How about these wild Big Ten finishes?

Both of the Big Ten’s early Saturday games came down to the wire and were won by the visitor by one point following last-second misses from the home team. In the first game, Sam Dekker missed a would-be game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer in No. 13 Wisconsin’s loss vs. No. 23 Ohio State. Then, Minnesota had a couple chances to win it at the buzzer in its loss vs. Northwestern. Watch the finishes in this post.

Another theme from the two games: unprecedented three-game streaks.

With its loss to Ohio State, Wisconsin has dropped three straight Big Ten home games for the first time since 1998, when it lost five straight. And with its win at Minnesota, Northwestern has won three straight Big Ten road games for the first time since 1960(!).
