COL BKB: Wisconsin 60, Michigan State 58

Feb. 9, 2014 at 3:45 PM   |   Comments

MADISON, Wis., Feb. 9 (UPI) -- Traevon Jackson hit a mid-range jumper with less than 3 seconds remaining Sunday, elevating Wisconsin over eighth-ranked Michigan State 60-58.

The Spartans had forged a 58-58 tie on Adreian Payne's 3-pointer from the top of key with 12 seconds left and were looking to send the game into overtime with a stop on the ensuing possession.

But Jackson ran the length of the court and pulled up for the key basket with time ticking down.

Travis Trice missed a desperation shot from halfcourt, and Wisconsin (19-5, 6-5 Big Ten) hung on to snap a five-game losing streak against Michigan State.

Nigel Hayes led the Badgers with 14 points in a reserve role.

Josh Gasser and Sam Dekker contributed 11 each.

The Spartans (20-4, 9-2) were paced by Payne with 24 points.
