(Newser) – The No. 15 Wisconsin Badgers got a three-pointer from 6-foot-11-inch center Brian Butch with four seconds remaining to defeat No. 13 Indiana 68-66. The win moves Wisconsin past the Hoosiers into sole possession of second place in the Big Ten behind Purdue. Jason Bohannon led Wisconsin with 18 points, all of which came from behind the arc, reports the Indianapolis Star.

The Hoosiers’ standout freshman Eric Gordon briefly gave Indiana the lead with 17 seconds remaining by hitting two free throws but Butch would bank in his three-pointer and Jamarcus Ellis’ desperation shot clanged off the back iron. It was Indiana’s second loss to Wisconsin this season. Gordon led the Hoosiers with 23 points and three assists. (Read more basketball stories.)
