Wisconsin surrounded by no. 3 Kansas in the semifinals of Battle 4 Atlantis

Does anyone still think Wisconsin will finish near bottom of the Big Ten this season?

Wisconsin coach Greg Gard learned a lot about his team against the no. Kansas ranked 3 Thursday in the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis in Paradise Island, The Bahamas.

Unranked UW, picked ninth in the Big Ten preseason poll, trailed by 15 points to start the second half and eight at the end of regulation before returning to force overtime against the defending national champion.

Wisconsin took the last lead of the game on a Tyler Wahl field goal, but backup guard Bobby Pettiford caught a loose ball on a missed three-pointer and scored at the buzzer to give the Jayhawks a stunning 69-68 victory.

box score: Kansas 69, Wisconsin 68 (OT)
