Less than two days after a disheartening 25-point loss on the home court to Ohio State, the Wisconsin Badgers looked like a different team Monday -- very different.
Tough defense and good movement on offense translated into a 64-63 win at Penn State. The Badgers even showed some resilience when the Nittay Lions were trying to rally from behind. Junior forward Khalil Iverson led Wisconsin scoring with 16 points, while freshman Nate Reuvers added 11. Wisconsin held a 51-34 lead with a little over nine-and-a-half minutes to go when Penn State went on a 16-3 run. The Lion rally fell just short. Center Mike Watkins led Penn State with 22 points. Wisconsin is back in action Wednesday night at Temple.
