50 greatest Wisconsin sports moments: No. 29, UWGB upsets Kidd and Cal
There have been other upsets from Wisconsin teams in the NCAA Tournament over the past 50 years, but there’s something irresistible about the Phoenix, a program whose foundation was built on defense and implemented by the godfather of state basketball, Dick Bennett’s Green Bay team gummed up the works for Kidd and Cal’s other star, another top-10 pick in the 1994 draft in Lamond Murray. The duo combined to finish 10 for 38, and UWGB pulled off the first-round defeat of the Bears, 61-57.”It’s a feeling that you can’t believe you lost the game,” said Murray, who shot 6 for 21 during the game in Ogden, Utah. “They had a hand up on every shot.”Murray was taken seventh overall in the draft a few months later and played 11 seasons in the NBA. But the moment is remembered as the time the upstart from Green Bay took down Jason Kidd.
