Badgers hoping for a repeat of 2011 vs. Ohio St.

Posted:

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- It stands to reason that when a team wins 34 of 37 games, the rare losses stand out more than all those wins.

   Ohio State point guard Aaron Craft remembers his momentary confusion and fear when Wisconsin's fans rushed the court after their dramatic 71-67 home win last Feb. 12. The top-ranked Buckeyes -- winners of their first 24 games to that point -- had led by 15 points before Jordan Taylor started hitting every shot he took to lead the No. 13 Badgers back.

   Now the two teams meet once more at Kohl Center on Saturday. This time the third-ranked Buckeyes, who have never beat the Badgers on their home floor in Thad Matta's eight seasons, don't want to be crushed in the crowd again.
