COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Following Wisconsin’s win over then 12th-ranked Minnesota on Saturday, Badgers senior Ryan Evans stated that every game in the Big Ten is a memory.

UW was on the brink of making their Tuesday visit to Value City Arena an unforgettable memory, but a scoring drought late in the second half halted any chance of the Badgers recording another upset road win.

Instead, No. 11 Ohio State (16-4, 6-2 Big Ten) used a 15-0 run to take the lead on the way to a 58-49 win over the Badgers (14-7, 5-3).

Sophomore Traevon Jackson tallied a team-best 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the field in 32 minutes of action. Senior Jared Berggren nearly tallied his second career double-double, scoring 11 points and adding nine rebounds, two blocks and two assists.

 Fast Facts
• The Badgers shot 11-for-28 from 3-point range
• UW is the only school in the country to play 7 ranked teams this season
• Wisconsin did not attempt a single free throw

After building as much as a seven-point lead in the first half, the Badgers took a 26-24 advantage into halftime. They extended their lead to five points, at 31-26, following a Jackson 3-pointer less than two minutes into the second half.

However, triggered by that 15-0 run, the Buckeyes outscored Wisconsin 26-10 over the next 11 minutes to regain the lead for the first time since the 7:39 mark of the first half.

A Ben Brust 3-pointer finally ended the Buckeyes’ run and cut the hosts’ lead to 52-44 with 5:50 remaining.

Less than a minute later, Berggren knocked down his second 3-pointer of the contest to trim the lead to five, but a turnover by Jackson resulted in a 3-point play for OSU’s Shannon Scott that effectively sealed the victory for the Buckeyes.

Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas led all scorers with 25 points, while teammate Aaron Craft added 13 points and seven rebounds.

Wisconsin returns to the road on Sunday to take on Illinois in Champaign. Tip-off is slated for 2:30 p.m. (CT) on Big Ten Network.
