Wisconsin Vs. Penn State Final Score: Nittany Lions Struggle In Second Half, Fall 52-46 At Home

The Wisconsin Badgers picked up their aggressiveness in the second half, foiling what had been a solid defensive effort by the Penn State Nittany Lions in the first half. Jordan Taylor scored 13 of his 18 points to lead the Badgers to a 52-46 win on Tuesday night.

The Nittany Lions did a nice job of forcing the Badgers to take 3-pointers in the first half. In the second they simply could not keep Taylor off of the free throw line. The senior point guard went 8-for-10 from the charity stripe to make up for an otherwise mediocre 4-for-12 performance from the field.

Penn State point guard Tim Frazier had 21 points in the loss, 17 of which came in the second half. He got there on 8-for-22 shooting, however. Jermaine Marshall scored just three points after intermission after a 10-points first half, going 1-4 from behind the 3-point arc.

Wisconsin Vs. Penn State: Nittany Lions Playing Tremendous Defense, Up Six Over Badgers At Half

The Penn State Nittany Lions turned in a defensive gem in the first half of Tuesday night's game against the Wisconsin Badgers. In a performance reminiscent of their 36-33 loss to the Nittany Lions in the Big Ten Tournament last season, the Badgers shot just 27 percent from the field, including 2-for-11 on 3-pointers. Penn State leads 23-17 at intermission.

Penn State has done just enough on the offensive end against the college basketball's No. 1-ranked scoring defense. Jermaine Marshall led the way with 10 points on 5-for-7 from the field. Tim Frazier had just four points, but has given the Badgers fits with his quickness, notching six assists so far.

Jordan Taylor, Wisconsin's leading score on the season, has just five points on the night. The Nittany Lions have done a great job of forcing the Badgers to settle for missed 3-point attempts late in the shot clock.
