No. 9 Texas squeaks by Wisconsin 74-69

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gary Johnson banked in a jump shot with 23.5 seconds left to help No. 9 Texas to a 74-69 victory over Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

A.J. Abrams scored 21 points to lead the Longhorns (10-2), who rebounded from Saturday's loss to another traditional Big Ten power, Michigan State, and won their first true road game of the season after an early schedule that included five neutral-site games.

Damion James added 18 points and 15 rebounds for Texas.

It was a rare loss at the Kohl Center for the Badgers (9-3), who are 113-8 at home in seven-plus seasons under coach Bo Ryan - including 58-5 in nonconference games.

Trevon Hughes had 18 points to lead Wisconsin.
