Wisconsin loses in heartbreaking fashion to Kansas in Overtime
The Wisconsin Badgers gave the No. 3 Kansas Jayhawks all they wanted today in their contest Thanksgiving morning but it wasn’t enough as the Badgers lost on a last-second shot to fall, 69-68,
The Badgers were led by Tyler Wahl who had 23 points and Connor Essegian who added 17 points.
The Badgers were down as many as 13 in the first half but made a furious comeback in the second to take the lead but the Jayhawks aren’t the No. 3 team in the country for nothing, they too made a run later in the game.

The Jayhawks were led by forward Jalen Wilson who had 29 points but it was Bobby Pettiford who saved the day for Kansas with a crazy off-balance shot that went in at the closing seconds of overtime.
That was Pettiford’s only points of the game but it was enough to carry Kansas to the finish. The Badgers now must regroup after this devastating loss and get ready to play again tomorrow.
