The No. 24 Ohio State basketball team earned a much-needed win on the road on Saturday afternoon, knocking off No. 14 Wisconsin 59-58.

The Buckeyes, who came into the game having lost five of their previous six, survived with the narrow win after Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker missed a three-pointer from the top of the arc as time expired.

Traevon Jackson, the son of Ohio State great Jimmy Jackson, had a chance to tie the game at the free throw line with only seconds remaining, but made only 1-of-2 attempts.

Shannon Scott grabbed the miss on the second shot, and threw it to Lenzelle Smith, who drove for the uncontested layup that would have put Ohio State up three with roughly 10 seconds remaining. But Smith missed, and after colliding with Amir Williams on the rebound, he fell to the floor with the ball in his hand and was called for the travel.

That gave Wisconsin the final possession down by only one, and it could have set up a disastrous finish. But Dekker’s shot missed, and Ohio State (17-5, 4-5 Big Ten) escaped with the win. The Buckeyes next play at Iowa on Tuesday.

LaQuinton Ross led Ohio State with 13 points, and Amedeo Della Valle added 11 off the bench.
