A late 18-6 second half surge capped by a long-range three-point shot from Wisconsin’s Nicole Bauman with less than a second remaining tied the game before the Badgers completed their comeback in overtime, beating the Green Bay Phoenix 65-61.
Wisconsin overcame a season-high 13 point halftime deficit in the victory. Wisconsin improved to 3-0 against in-state teams this season for the first time since 2008-09. The win also ended a 4-game losing streak against Green Bay.
Green Bay shot just 29% from the field for the game (19-65) while the Badgers improved on their 31% mark at halftime to finish the game at 44% (23-52). The Badgers turned the ball over 20 times, but they won the battle on the boards 43-38.
Green Bay falls to 6-5 after suffering a 4th straight defeat. They’ll play their final non-conference game on Wednesday against Maine at the Kress Center (1pm).
