Traevon Jackson hit a pull-up jumper with 2.1 seconds left for Wisconsin, 10 seconds after Michigan State's Adreian Payne tied it with a 3, and the Badgers beat the ninth-ranked Spartans 60-58 on Sunday.

The Badgers (19-5, 6-5 Big Ten) committed 14 turnovers, six more than their NCAA-leading 8.3 per game, but gutted out a win over the Spartans (20-4, 9-2).

A desperation 3 by Michigan State from midcourt banged off the rim as time expired, and the Wisconsin faithful erupted with applause. The victory snapped a three-game losing skid at home.

Tied at 58, coach Bo Ryan again put the ball in the hands of Jackson, who has a history of hitting clutch shots.

Payne finished with 24 points.
