Wisconsin, USC face off in Bahamas after OT losses

Wisconsin and Southern California will meet in the third-place game of the Battle 4 Atlantis on Friday at Paradise Island, Bahamas, after suffering overtime losses in the semifinals a day earlier.

The Badgers (4-1) left the court dejected after Bobby Pettiford Jr.’s reverse layup of a missed 3-pointer as time expired in overtime lifted No. 3 Kansas (6-0) to a 69-68 win. The Badgers had taken the lead with 20 seconds left on Tyler Wahl’s driving layup.

A few hours later, USC (4-2) squandered a late lead in regulation and mustered just four points in overtime. Tennessee’s Santiago Vescovi hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:45 remaining in No. 22 Tennessee’s 73-66 win.

The Trojans tied the game at 66 on Boogie Ellis’ jumper with 2:09 left before Vescovi gave Tennessee the lead for good.

USC was led by Ellis, who had 21 points, four assists and three rebounds, while Trey White had 11 points and four rebounds as the only other Trojan to finish in double figures.

The Trojans went 27 for 60 (45 percent) from the field, including 5 of 15 from 3-point range and committed 20 turnovers, including six in overtime, that the Volunteers converted into 25 points.
