Badger women follow the men in Twin Cities loss

Just one day after the Badger men’s basketball team suffered defeat in Minneapolis, the Badger women’s team followed suit.  Cold second half shooting led to Wisconsin’s demise in a 64-53 loss to the Gophers.

The Badgers (9-9, 2-4 Big Ten) shot 31% from the field in the second half (9 of 29) and hit just 2 of 14 from three-point range (14.3%), surrendering a lead and losing on the road to the Gophers (13-7, 2-4).

Morgan Paige had 13 points and Nicole Bauman added 11 for the Badgers.  Wisconsin’s top two scorers, Michala Johnson and Taylor Wurtz were held to 8 and 7 points respectively, shooting a combined 6 of 22 (27%) from the field.

Rachel Banham had 19 to lead Minnesota.
