Wisconsin edges Arizona, earns spot in Final Four

(AP) Wisconsin bumped and grinded its way into the Final Four. Frank Kaminsky had 28 points and 11 rebounds for Wisconsin, rallying the Badgers to a 64-63 overtime victory against Arizona in the West Region final Saturday night.

The Badgers (30-7) advanced to their first Final Four appearance since 2000 on Saturday night, and first for 69-year-old coach Bo Ryan, who earned his 704th career victory.

Nick Johnson had the ball with a chance to win, but he missed a shot that came just after the buzzer for Arizona (33-5), the top-seeded team that has yet to win a West Region final in Anaheim in four tries. Johnson led the Wildcats with 16 points, and Aaron Gordon had 18 rebounds in the relentlessly physical game.

Congrats to the Badgers making the Final Four. Lets make it three out of four B1G teams in the Final Four. Go Spartans and Wolverines….

The path to North Texas is paved with B1G bricks right now… all Michigan and Michigan State have to do is follow it.

Go B1G or go home. Way to go Wisconsin, and lets go Michigan and Michigan State.
