Ohio State survives in Madison

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

No. 24 Ohio State won a wild one in Madison on Saturday afternoon over No. 14 Wisconsin. The Buckeyes held on after a turnover with eight seconds left and got a 59-58 win.

Sam Dekker missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have won it for the Badgers. His shot was set up by a fluke play. Lenzelle Smith, Jr. got the ball in transition after Traevon Jackson missed a free throw in the final moments, but he was then accidentally bumped to the floor by teammate Amir Williams after getting his own offensive rebound. Wisconsin was awarded the ball back and Dekker was given his chance to win it.

Ohio State had lost four of their last five games going in.
