Piscataway, NJ (AP) -

Corey Sanders scored 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting to give Rutgers a much-needed win over Wisconsin, 64-60, Friday night.

Sanders scored with 1:47 left then added a 3-pointer with under a minute to go for a 58-53 lead.

Brad Davison hit Wisconsin's first 3-pointer of the game to tie it at 53 and cap a 7-0 run.

Tied at 15, Sanders hit a layup at the buzzer to give Rutgers a 25-24 lead at halftime but Wisconsin (9-8, 2-2 Big Ten) took the lead on the first possession of the second half.

The game went back and forth before Rutgers (11-6, 1-3) took the lead on a Sanders 3-pointer to make it 36-34 at the 13:38 mark. Sanders scored on an alley-oop followed by a Geo Baker layup to close out a 14-2 run and give Rutgers a 42-35 lead.

Deshawn Freeman had 15 points for Rutgers.

Wisconsin was led by Ethan Happ's 10 points and 10 rebounds, while Nate Reuvers added 10 points.
