The second day of Sweet 16 games were largely letdowns as the first three games of the night were decided by double digits. The last game of the night, featuring Florida and Wisconsin gave us our most dramatic finish. The Badgers trailed by three 72-69 with just 6.4 seconds left in the game and had possession of the ball on a sidelines out of bounds play. What happened next, well, let’s just say Zak Showalter became a hero in Madison.
The best part? Showalter turned to the crowd to find Wisconsin fan and Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, and used his signature celebration.
Showalter’s off balance, one-footed three tied the game at 72 and sent it to overtime to decide who would have the right to play South Carolina for the East region title on Sunday.
