Badgers Fall Victim of Comeback at Michigan State

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Draymond Green scored a career-high 26 points, and Kalin Lucas made three free throws in the final minute of overtime to lift Michigan State to a much-needed 64-61 victory over No. 20 Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

The Spartans, who have been in a funk for most of the season, scored the final nine points of regulation to tie the game at 53, then outlasted the Badgers (12-4, 2-2 Big Ten) in the extra session. Lucas put Michigan State (11-5, 3-1) up by one with a free throw with 30.2 seconds remaining, and Wisconsin's Jordan Taylor then missed from near the top of the key.

Lucas added two free throws with 2.2 seconds left.

Taylor scored 21 points for Wisconsin.
