Recap: Barely Holding Momentum

It wasn't the prettiest thing to watch, but Wisconsin is back to .500 in the Big Ten after another gritty Big Ten contest. Despite shooting 21.4 percent in the second half, the Badgers limit Nebraska to 35.2 percent shooting, get 19 points from senior guard Jordan Taylor and enough big plays down the stretch to beat the Cornhuskers, 50-45, Sunday.

Notes: Jordan Taylor led all scorers with 19 points, including an 11-of-15 performance at the free throw line ... Jared Berggren was one point shy of his first career double-double, ending with 9 points and a career-high 13 rebounds ... After hitting their final eight free throws in the last two minutes in Thursday night's win at Purdue, the Badgers were clutch again at the line against the Cornhuskers. UW made 7-of-8 from the charity stripe in the game's final 1:20 to hold off Nebraska.
