The Wisconsin women’s basketball team put together a late surge to make things interesting, but the Badgers ran out of time and fell to Minnesota 60-55 at the Kohl Center.
Wisconsin (8-7, 0-2 Big Ten) kept Minnesota (12-4, 1-1) without a field goal in the final 4:18 of action and outscored the Gophers 13-6 over the final two minutes, but ran out of time to get the victory.
Morgan Paige scored 10 of her team-high 22 points in the final 4:33.
The Gophers led by just three at halftime, but grew their lead to 12 points with 2:25 to go in the game. The Badgers would get no closer than 4 the rest of the way.
The Badgers continue league play at the Kohl Center on Thursday when they host Iowa.
