The Wisconsin Badger women’s basketball team blew a 28-20 halftime lead and fell to the Purdue Boilermakers 58-48 in Big Ten Women’s basketball action on Thursday night.
Purdue (19-5, 8-3 Big Ten) opened the second half with a 10-5 run to tie the game. Wisconsin would go back in front, but a 4th foul charged to Wisconsin’s Jacki Gulczynski, sent her to the bench and the Badgers momentum came to a crashing halt.
Gulczynski finished the night with 19 points for the Badgers (11-14, 3-9), her 18th-consecutive double-digit scoring performance of the season.
Wisconsin next plays at Illinois on Monday night.
