It’s always a difficult task to win on the road, Big Ten or not. So it must have been a jubilant feeling in the locker room for the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team ( 2-8 Big Ten, 9-14 overall) as they took down the University of Illinois Fighting Illini (0-9, 9-14) 70-61 in Champaign, Ill. The Badgers’ victory marks their first conference road-victory since March 1, 2015, when they took down the Penn State Nittany Lions 62-56 in State College, Pa.
Turnovers and defensive lapses have been a recurring theme for the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team.
For a large portion of Wisconsin’s (1-8 Big Ten, 8-14 overall) 69-55 loss to Indiana Wednesday night, UW was able to keep the game within single digits of Indiana (3-6, 10-12). But down the stretch, especially in the fourth quarter, it was incapable of converting its efforts into a successful outcome and fell short, yet again.
After snapping a seven-game losing streak at home on Sunday, UW (1-7 Big Ten, 8-13 overall) secured its first Big Ten win against Northwestern.
Finally. After going winless in the Big-10 throughout December and deep into January, the University of Wisconsin Women’s basketball team broke the seal, as it took down the Northwestern Wildcats 58-46 to earn its first conference victory of the 2017-’18 season in front of a season-high attendance at the Kohl Center.
MINNEAPOLIS — The Wisconsin women’s basketball team's (0-6 Big Ten, 7-13 overall) shooting woes and foul trouble that plagued them throughout the first half of their 90-65 loss to the Minnesota Golden Gophers (4-3, 15-5) gave UW a deficit that was too much to come back from.
After a disappointing fourth quarter against Penn State on Jan. 14, the Wisconsin women’s basketball team (0-6 Big Ten, 7-12 overall) will look to put together a rare complete game.

The Wisconsin women’s basketball team (0-4 Big Ten, 7-10 overall) wrapped up their tough opening stretch of conference play Sunday afternoon as the No. 13 Maryland Terrapins (4-0, 15-2) used a 20-4 run in the second and third quarters to secure a 71-44 victory at the Kohl Center.
The Wisconsin women’s basketball team (0-3 Big Ten, 7-9) will welcome the No. 13 Maryland Terrapins (3-0, 14-2) into the Kohl Center Sunday at 2 p.m., hoping to stop a four game losing skid. It’s a tale of two different starts to conference play as Maryland has started out with two dominant performances and a nail bitting win against Penn State, while the Badgers have had a less than ideal start to conference play struggling in their first three contests to have offensive consistency. The Terrapins have the second best scoring offense in the Big Ten scoring 88 points per game and also lead the Big Ten in three-point field goal percentage at 39.1 percent.
After trailing the entire game, the Wisconsin women’s basketball team (0-3 Big Ten, 7-9 overall) fell yet again at home 80-57 to a more dangerous Michigan (2-1, 13-3) squad.

As the final horn rang in Mackey Arena, the University of Wisconsin-Madison women’s basketball team (0-2 Big Ten, 7-8 overall) walked off the floor with a dismal 57-35 loss to the Purdue Boilermakers (1-1, 10-6) — along with a whole new list chocked full of New Year’s resolutions as they head into 2018. Improvements in offensive execution, overcoming scoring lapses, taking care of the ball and transition defense are at the top of the agenda for the Badgers, as the team looks on towards the second half of their season.
The Wisconsin women’s basketball team (0-1 Big Ten, 7-7 overal) had not played in over two weeks entering Thursday night: It showed.

After aniliating Savannah State 82-24 on Sunday, Wisconsin (7-5) looks to continue to protect its home court Thursday night when it hosts Milwaukee (7-2). “You want to be prideful and protect your home court and we have done that in all except the Green Bay game,” head coach Jonathan Tsipis said. Throughout the beginning of the season, the Badgers have experienced both convincing wins and losses, but it is crucial for them to take what they have learned thus far and keep their energy up as they near the start of conference play. Milwaukee will pose a challenge for UW as Wisconsin will have to match up with a handful of skilled players.
Simply dazzling. Or is dominating the right word? That’s about the only debate one can draw from the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s 82-24 annihilation of Savannah State University Sunday night at the Kohl Center. The game really spoke for itself as the Badgers (7-5) clobbered the Lady Tigers (2-5) with grace and without mercy in record-breaking fashion.
It’s been a long week for the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team. They’ve played four games in seven days to be exact.
