Badger women defeat Hoosiers

Back and forth they went, the Wisconsin women’s basketball team and Big Ten rival Indiana.  Ten ties and twelve lead changes and the Badgers eventually prevailed, 65-60 over the Hoosiers at the Kohl Center.

Jacki Gulczynski had a season-high 23 points and 13 rebounds, recording her third double-double of the season to lead the way for the Badgers (9-7, 2-2 Big Ten).  Indiana (14-2, 1-2) got 14 from Larryn Brooks and 13 from Alexis Gassion in the loss.

The Badgers shot 37.9% from the field and 31.8% from three-point range, but they made the difference at the free throw line.  Wisconsin hit 14 of 19 (73%) while the Hoosiers made 11 of 13 (84.6%).

The Badgers return to Big Ten action on Saturday when they travel to Northwestern for a 2pm tip in Evanston, Ill.
