Recap


Jordan Taylor scored 21 of his 27 points in the second half, leading No. 14 Wisconsin back from a 15-point deficit for a 71-67 victory over top-ranked and previously unbeaten Ohio State on Saturday afternoon in Madison, Wis.

The Badgers (19-5, 9-3 Big Ten) trailed 47-32 with 13:21 remaining, before Taylor scored eight consecutive points to spark a 15-0 surge that evened the score with 9:46 left. Ohio State led by three before Taylor scored the last five points of another 10-0 run that put Wisconsin ahead for good, 62-55, at the 4:18 mark.

Despite shooting 54.3 percent (25 of 46) and committing just seven turnovers, the Buckeyes (24-1, 11-1) could not hold on against the Badgers, who made 12 of 24 shots from 3-point range and hit 51 percent of their field-goal attempts overall.

Mike Bruesewitz and Jon Leuer added 12 points apiece for Wisconsin. William Buford paced Ohio State with 21 points, while Jared Sullinger added 19 points and 13 rebounds.

The victory was just the second ever over a No. 1 team by the Badgers and their first since upending an undefeated Ohio State team in 1962.
