Wisconsin’s Ryan Evans goes with the unorthodox jump shot free throw

Ryan Evans at the line

In an attempt to improve his woeful free throw percentage, Wisconsin Badgers starting forward Ryan Evans decided to change up his free throw shooting style a bit.

Channeling former NBA pros Hal Greer and Rick Barry, Evans decided to take a step back from the charity stripe and throw up a jump shot.

On the two occasions he was at the line in a 77-46 drubbing of Nebraska, he went 2-of-2 and will most likely make the permanent switch to the jump shot free throw.

Ben Brust game-winning shot

With only 2.4 seconds left on the clock, Wisconsin Badgers junior guard Ben Brust made one of the most memorable shots in the history of the program. Brust took an inbound pass from teammate Mike Bruesewitz at half-court, turned the corner and hit a game-tying 40 foot running jump-shot at the buzzer with a Michigan defender draped all over him.

Not only did he hit one of the best shots of the college basketball season, he displayed ice-cold veins by knocking down a critical three in overtime to seal the Badgers home-win over third ranked Michigan.

Some would credit Brust's heroic acts on this day as just another role player stepping up, but statistically it could be argued that he's been the Badgers most important player all season.

Gary Andersen lands a solid class for the Wisconsin Badgers in 2013

Wisconsin Coach Football

Even with a new coach at the helm, the Wisconsin Badgers football program put forth another successful National Signing Day with one of their best classes ever.

With the departure of Bret Bielema to Arkansas, the Badgers thoughtfully hired Gary Andersen and made recruiting the first priority of the new regime.

The 2013 class is headlined by four-star running back Corey Clement and JUCO  transfer quarterback Tanner McEvoy.

Here are the notable signees (four-star recruits) who hope they can play a part in the Badgers returning to the Rose Bowl for a fourth year in a row.
