Revenge beats a juggernaut when the team seeking the redemption — is pretty damn good. The Wisconsin Badgers waited a year and did the unthinkable — exacting revenge for last season’s Final Four loss by defeating the Wildcats 71-64 to end Kentucky’s run at a perfect season at 38-1.
The Badgers used a late 15-4 rally following a four-point deficit with four minutes left to pick up the win — with Sam Dekker essentially ending it with this stepback three.
Frank Kaminsky led the way with 20 points, including seven during the first three minutes of the second half where Wisconsin dominated the Wildcats and stretched out a lead to eight points.
Wisconsin will now face Duke in a rematch of an early season game that saw the Blue Devils beat the Badgers in Madison 80-70.
