Posted:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Jordan Johnson scored 22 points as Milwaukee beat Wisconsin 68-67 Wednesday night, snapping a 22-game losing streak to the Badgers.

Nigel Hayes led Wisconsin (6-4) with 32 points. But he missed a pair of free throws that could have tied the game with less than 25 seconds left.

Akeem Springs hit a pair of free throws on the other end for Milwaukee (7-3). But Bronson Koenig answered with a 3 that pulled Wisconsin within 68-67 with 13.4 seconds left.

Wisconsin got one last chance after Milwaukee's J.J. Panoske was called for traveling as the Badgers went to a full-court press. But Koenig's 3-point attempt was off, and Milwaukee players rushed the court after the buzzer sounded.

Wisconsin led by as many as 15 in the first half.
