Badger women’s hoops remain winless in Big Ten

The Wisconsin Badger women’s basketball team is still looking for its first Big Ten victory of the season.

The Badgers fell to 8th ranked Penn State 84-40, their largest losing margin since falling at No. 10 Purdue 93-45 on March 6, 1994.

The Nittany Lions (14-2, 4-0 Big Ten) jumped out to an 11-0 lead and never looked back.  Wisconsin didn’t get on the board until Nicole Bauman hit a 3-pointer at the 15:35 mark of the first half.

The Badgers (8-10, 0-5) turned the ball over 17 times in the first half.

Morgan Paige had 14 points to lead Wisconsin, which shot just 26.4% from the field.

The Badgers return home Sunday to host Ohio State (2pm) at the Kohl Center.
