Despite being the underdogs, PSU pulled off their best game of the season in defeating Wisconsin. Tyler Wahl (13 points, 10 boards) had a huge first half but the Badgers defense called out sick and surrendered a 50 point second half.

The Badgers seemed to be in control with the first half climaxing with them holding a 34-31 advantage. A host of Lions stepped up and was led by a twenty-point outburst from Myreon Jones who was aided by Izaiah Washington who just missed a double-double with a 17 point, 9 rebound performance. Not to be outdone, John Harrar drained 17 points.

For the Badgers, Nathan Reuvers accumulated 18 points aided by Aleem Ford’s 15 and a double-double from Tyler Wahl with his 13 points, 10 boards game.
