The 22nd ranked Wisconsin Badgers received a scare but managed to pull out a 63-
60 win over Penn State in the Big Ten finale in State College on Sunday.
Traevon Jackson hit a long 3-pointer as time expired, giving the Badgers their 12th Big Ten victory (21-10, 12-6 Big Ten) this season. Wisconsin reached 12 league wins for the fourth straight year and helped the Badgers secure the 4th seed and a 1st round bye in the upcoming Big Ten tournament.
The Badgers got the help they needed when Indiana knocked off Michigan 72-71 on Sunday to win the Big Ten title outright.
Jackson led the Badgers with 15 points. Freshman Sam Dekker added 14, while Ben Brust added 13 points and 4 assists.
Wisconsin waits until Friday to play in the Big Ten Quarterfinals. The Badgers will face the winner of Thursday’s 1st round game between Michigan and Penn State.
