The night concluded with a 74-56 victory for the Badgers.

Three days after setting the school record for the most three-pointers made in a game, the Wisconsin women's basketball team couldn't get anything to fall from behind the three-point line.

Over the past two weeks, the Wisconsin women's basketball team has shown that it can hang with any Big Ten team for 40 minutes, home or away. But against Iowa at the Kohl Center Thursday, it was the overtime period that did the Badgers in.
Senior forward Anya Covington and the rest of the Wisconsin women's basketball team look to keep their winning streak alive when they welcome Michigan to the Kohl Center on Monday.

The Wisconsin women's basketball team's (3-5 Big Ten, 7-13 overall) quick start and ability to hold off a late Minnesota (3-5, 11-11) rally propelled the Badgers to come away with a 78-72 Big Ten win on the road. Tonight's game marked the highest point-total on the season for the Badgers, who shot 50 percent (30-60) from the floor.
Senior forward Anya Covington scored a career-high 23 points and matched her career high in rebounds with 12 as Wisconsin (2-5 Big Ten, 6-13 overall) handily defeated the Northwestern Wildcats (2-5, 12-8) 75-55 Sunday afternoon at the Kohl Center.
The Wisconsin women's basketball team (4-7 overall) is in the midst of a 12-day break, and based on its last few performances, it appears the time off comes at the perfect time for the Badgers.
