MADISON, Wis. - When Ben Brust tied the game at the end of regulation with a shot just from just inside midcourt, his teammate Mike Bruesewitz looked over at Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan and saw something unusual.

His coach had both his arms in the air.

"You know when he shows some emotion, you've done something pretty special," Bruesewitz said.

Brust hit a tiebreaking three-pointer with less than 40 seconds left in overtime as Wisconsin (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten) beat No. 3 Michigan 65-62 Saturday.

"It was awesome, something I'll remember forever, and I'm sure a lot of people will," Brust said of the game.

The Wolverines (21-3, 8-3) became the third top three team to lose this week as No. 1 Indiana lost to Illinois and No. 2 Florida was beaten by Arkansas. This should be the sixth straight week with a different No. 1 in the AP Top 25.

• No 25 Notre Dame 104, No. 11 Louisville 101, 50T: In South Bend, Ind., Cameron Biedscheid scored on a layup with 1:19 left in the fifth overtime, and Eric Atkins and Pat Connaugton added free throws in the final 19 seconds as Notre Dame overcame an eight-point deficit in regulation to beat Louisville.

Russ Smith had a chance to tie it, but his three-point attempt missed. It marked the sixth time in the last eight meetings that a game between the Fighting Irish (19-5, 7-6 Big East) and the Cardinals (19-5, 7-4) went into OT.

• UNLV 64, No. 15 New Mexico 55: In Las Vegas, Anthony Bennett had 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead UNLV. The Runnin' Rebels (18-6, 5-4 Mountain West) came in desperately needing a win after surprising losses to Boise State and at Fresno State.

• No. 2 Florida 83, Mississippi 58: In Gainesville, Fla., Mike Rosario scored 18 points, Erik Murphy added 17 and Florida bounced back from a humbling loss earlier in the week.

• Oklahoma 72, No. 5 Kansas 66: In Norman, Okla., Romero Osby scored 17 points, Steven Pledger added 15 and Oklahoma held off Kansas to give the Jayhawks their first three-game losing streak in eight years.

• No. 6 Gonzaga 74, Loyola Marymount 55: In Spokane, Wash., Kevin Pangos and Kelly Olynyk each scored 20 points, and Gonzaga (23-2, 10-0 WCC) put itself on the brink of cracking the top 5.

• No. 8 Miami 87, North Carolina 61: In Coral Gables, Fla., Shane Larkin had 18 points and a career-high nine assists, and Miami hit a school record-tying 15 three-pointers to beat North Carolina for its 11th straight victory.

• No. 12 Michigan State 78, Purdue 65: In West Lafyette, Ind., Branden Dawson scored 20 points and Keith Appling added 17, leading Michigan State past Purdue.

• No. 13 Kansas State 79, Iowa State 70: In Manhattan, Kan., Rodney McGruder scored 22 points and Angel Rodriguez added 20 as Kansas State took sole possession of first place in the Big 12.

• No. 14 Butler 59, George Washington 56: In Washington, Rotnei Clark scored 14 points and Butler nearly blew a 17-point lead, going the last 7 1/2 minutes without a field goal.

• Illinois St. 75, No. 16 Creighton 72: In Omaha, Neb., Tyler Brown scored 23 of his 27 points in the second half and Illinois State took advantage of Creighton's dismal shooting.

• No. 23 Pittsburgh 62, No. 17 Cincinnati 52: In Cincinnati, Tray Woodall scored 14 points and led a late surge that sent Pittsburgh to a victory over Cincinnati.

• No. 20 Georgetown 69, Rutgers 63: In Piscataway, N.J., Markel Starks scored 20 points and Otto Porter took over down the stretch to lead Georgetown.
