Posted-February 1st, 2012 12:41 am

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Jordan Taylor scored 18 points, including a key 3-pointer from the top of key with 1:44 left, to help No. 19 Wisconsin hold off Penn State 52-46 on Tuesday night for its sixth straight victory.

Taylor made six free throws over the final minute, helping the Badgers (18-5, 7-3 Big Ten) overcome an early nine-point deficit.

Trailing 40-38, Penn State (10-13, 2-8) missed on three tries to tie or take the lead. Jon Graham missed two foul shots before Jermaine Marshall misfired on a 3 and missed a layup after grabbing his own rebound.

Taylor took over from there with his clutch 3. He scored 13 of Wisconsin's last 17 points.

Tim Frazier led Penn State with 21 points.

Penn State coach Patrick Chambers wore jet-black Nike sneakers on the sideline, sporting a look like late Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno.
