Notre Dame outlasts Louisville in 5 overtimes

Irish beat Cardinals, 104-101; No. 3 Michigan, No. 5 Kansas upset

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 No. 25 Notre Dame overcame an eight-point deficit in regulation to beat No. 11 Louisville 104-101 on Saturday night.

Russ Smith had a chance to tie it, but his 3-point attempt missed before Notre Dame students flooded the court to celebrate. 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 overtime.

Both teams missed crucial free throws in the final minute. Atkins missed two with 37 seconds left and Montrezi Harrell did the same for Louisville with 24 seconds left.

Jerian Grant, who fouled out with 1:57 left in the first overtime, led the Irish with 19 points.

Chane Behanan had 30 points and 15 rebounds for Louisville.

NO. 2 FLORIDA 83, MISSISSIPPI ST. 58

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Mike Rosario scored 18 points, Erik Murphy added 17 and Florida bounced back from a humbling loss earlier in the week to thump Mississippi State.

Casey Prather, playing in place of injured forward Will Yeguete, chipped in 12 points and five rebounds for Florida (19-3, 9-1 Southeastern Conference). Yeguete had arthroscopic surgery Friday to remove loose bodies in his right knee and will miss at least the rest of the regular season.

Gavin Ware scored 16 points, Colin Borchert added 14 and Trivante Bloodman chipped in 10 for Mississippi State (7-15, 2-8) — which played without guard Jalen Steele, who didn't make the trip after being suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.

WISCONSIN 65, NO. 3 MICHIGAN 62, OT

MADISON, Wis. — Ben Brust hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with less than 40 seconds left in overtime to lift Wisconsin to a surprise win over Michigan.

Brust's shot at the end of regulation was a dramatic turn of events for Wisconsin (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten) and a soul crusher for Michigan (21-3, 8-3). Just moments earlier, Tim Hardaway Jr. hit a contested 3-pointer to put the Wolverines up 60-57 with less than 3 seconds left in regulation.
