Wisconsin Vs. Penn State Second Half Updates: Lions Upset Badgers

David Jackson hits two at the line to give Penn State a six point lead.

Talor Battle has grabbed two key rebounds off Wisconsin misses here. The second sends him to the foul line after the Badgers foul him, but he misses the front end of a one-and-one.

With 2:25 to play, Penn State continues to nurse a six point lead. No doubt the Badgers are going to start looking for some triples. The Lions have guarded pretty well out there today, holding Wisconsin to 26%. Gotta keep that up to hold on here.

Jordan Taylor gets a bucket and-one misses the free throw and Wisconsin recovers the offensive board. It'll have the ball down four with 2:02 to play.

Jordan Taylor has four fouls by the way.

Penn State gets a stop, up four on this possession with the ball under 2:00 to play.

Crowd is on its feet.

An Andrew Jones layup pushes the Penn State lead to six once again, and the Lions force a stop. Wisconsin fouls. The Lions are sitting pretty now.

Wisconsin only has 15 points this half. Spectacular defense on Leuer and Taylor by Penn State.

The game has descended into free throws.

Penn State wins 56-52. Heading to the press room. More to come on this huge win for Penn State later this evening.
