Wisconsin Holds Off Vanderbilt 60-57

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Ryan Evans scored 11 points and grabbed a crucial rebound in the closing seconds, helping Wisconsin hold off Vanderbilt 60-57 Saturday night to advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament.

John Jenkins took a 3-pointer that would have given the Commodores the lead, but it bounced high off the rim and Evans pulled down the rebound and was fouled with 2.1 seconds left.

He made the first free throw to make it a three-point game. After a Vanderbilt timeout, he missed the second and the Commodores called time with 1.3 seconds remaining.

Jared Berggren contested the inbounds pass and got his right hand on Lance Goulbourne’s overhand heave and started celebrating Wisconsin’s fifth trip to the round of 16 under coach Bo Ryan as the horn sounded.
