MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin junior guard Jordan Taylor is the Big Ten’s player of the week.

Taylor scored a game-high 27 points in Saturday’s upset of unbeaten Ohio State. Twenty-one of those points came in the final 12 minutes, 58 seconds of the game to help the Badgers wipe out a 15-point deficit and beat the Buckeyes 71-67.

Taylor, from Bloomington, Minn., is just the second player in the last 14 years to score 27 points and 7 assists against the No. 1 team in The Associated Press poll.
