Game Recap: No Deju Vu for Wisconsin

(Siker/13)

Freshman Sam Dekker scored 14 points and Ben Brust added 11 points, but No.20 Wisconsin didn't score in the final 5:08 of regulation to force the program's third straight overtime. Unlike the last two times, this one didn't bounce in its favor, as Minnesota broke a four-game series losing streak with a 58-53 overtime victory at Williams Arena Thursday.
