Badgers top Buckeyes in OT

The Wisconsin Badgers were able to stave off a furious comeback by the Ohio State Buckeyes Sunday afternoon to escape Columbus with a 73-67 overtime victory. The Badgers saw their 20-plus lead disappear thanks to a 27-5 run by the Buckeyes to come within two desperate three-point shot attempts away from blowing the biggest lead in the Big Ten this season. A pair of Khalil Iverson baskets and a handful free-throws later, the Badgers were able to earn a double-bye in this week's Big Ten Tournament, which starts on Wednesday. Ethan Happ racked up another double-double, scoring 18 points and grabbing 14 rebounds in the win. The Badgers will face the winner of Maryland and Nebraska/Rutgers on Friday.
