CBKB: No. 18 Wisconsin needs OT to beat Penn State 79-71

Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. Jordan Taylor scored the last eight points of regulation to tie the game, then went on to score 10 more in overtime and lead No. 18 Wisconsin to a 79-71 victory over Penn State today.

With the loss, the Nittany Lions remain winless in Big Ten play.

Trevon Hughes scored 22 points and Taylor finished with 20 for Badgers (16-4, 6-2 Big Ten), who trailed for most of the game as their recent string of ugly outside shooting performances continued.

Talor Battle scored 28 and Chris Babb added 16 for the Nittany Lions (8-11, 0-7), who were ahead 60-52 with 2 minutes left in regulation before Taylor's scoring outburst.
