Ohio St. Suffers First Loss Of The Year

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Jordan Taylor scored 21 of his 27 points in the second half to rally No. 13 Wisconsin from a 15-point deficit to beat previously unbeaten No. 1 Ohio State 71-67 on Saturday.

Wisconsin (19-5, 9-3 Big Ten) beat a No. 1 opponent for the first time since 1962, when it was also Ohio State. The Badgers joined Florida as the only programs to knock off the same No. 1 school in both football and men's basketball in the same academic year.

Fans at the Kohl Center stormed the court, just like when they rushed the field at Camp Randall Stadium following the Badgers' 31-18 win there over then-No. 1 Ohio State on Oct. 16.

William Buford scored 21 points for Ohio State (24-1, 11-1).

Freshman Jared Sullinger made an easy layup to push the Buckeyes' lead to 47-32 with 13:21 left, setting the stage for the comeback.
