MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Traevon Jackson just beat the shot clock and hit a 15-foot jumper from the right side with 4 seconds left as Wisconsin got past No. 12 Minnesota 45-44 on Saturday, the Golden Gophers' fourth straight loss.
After Jackson's shot gave the Badgers a 45-43 lead, the Golden Gophers (15-5, 3-4 Big Ten) called a timeout with 1.8 seconds remaining and inbounded from halfcourt. The Badgers' Mike Bruesewitz fouled Trevor Mbakwe on the play, but the big man was unable to shoot the ensuing free throws because of an apparent right hand or wrist injury.
Rodney Williams stepped to the line and made the first free throw, but missed the second and Sam Dekker grabbed the rebound to seal the win for Wisconsin (14-6, 5-2), which ended a two-game slide.
Andre Hollins had 20 points for Minnesota.
