Wisconsin Badgers' guard Jordan Taylor proved that nobody's perfect.
The junior sharpshooter sank the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes with a 27-point performance, 15 coming off three-pointers, at Kohl Center in Madison.
The Buckeyes shot an excellent 54.3% from the field and 87.5% from the free-throw line, but it wasn't enough thanks to the excellent outside shooting of Wisconsin. The Badgers were 12-24 from beyond the arc and used their hot shooting to overcome a 15-point deficit with 13 minutes remaining in the second half.
It was a thrilling victory for the 14th ranked Badgers, who energized a crowd that would later storm the court, thanks to a 15-0 run.
We knew we had a run in us, Taylor said.
The Buckeyes were led by an inside-outside game of Jared Sullinger and William Buford, each of whom played 40 minutes, shooting 17-of-30 from the field. Sullinger contributed 19 points and 12 rebounds while Buford added 21 points.
The loss may drop Ohio State out of the number one ranking.
Wisconsin is likely to move up in the rankings after Saturday's victory. With number 13-ranked Syracuse falling today to number 15-ranked Louisville, and number 10-ranked Villanova's loss to Pittsburgh, the Badgers should at least advance a couple of places in the rankings.
