Badgers Beat Penn State in Overtime


For most of the afternoon Sunday, Wisconsin’s shots weren’t falling, while Penn State could not miss.
Over the final 15 minutes, however, the Badgers turned the tables on the Nittany Lions as they rallied back to escape with a 79-71 overtime victory at the Kohl Center.
Wisconsin’s win, its sixth in conference play this season, extended the Badgers’ mark to 51-0 at home against unranked Big Ten opponents in the Bo Ryan era.
“We just kept sticking to our stuff; we knew some shots would fall,” senior guard Jason Bohannon said. “It didn’t look like it at times, but there were stretches where we got hot — Jordan (Taylor) certainly did toward the end of the game and that really propelled us to the victory.”
It took an incredible effort from both senior guard Trevon Hughes and sophomore guard Jordan Taylor to keep the Badgers undefeated at home in 2009-10. Hughes’ 22 points were a team-high while Taylor added 20 points, all in the second half.
It sure is great to see Bucky Badger battle back and win in overtime. I think when it comes time for the NCAA Basketball tournament the Badgers are going to be a bracket buster. GO BUCKY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
