Women's Basketball


Women's basketball: Big Ten preview

After floundering to a 47-100 record over the past five seasons under head coach Bobbie Kelsey, Wisconsin women’s basketball fired Kelsey, looking for a coach to rebuild and retool the program. The team found that person in new head coach Jonathan Tsipis, a former Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year, and a key component of Notre Dame’s recruitment corps that built a powerhouse program. This season, the team has welcomed in eight new players––six of which are freshman.


Howard provides effort, leadership as Badgers prep for North Carolina, Illinois State

Playing mostly a backup role, outside of one start in the game at UW-Milwaukee, sophomore forward Marsha Howard has been a sparkplug for this young Badgers team. Wisconsin (2-5) has been struggling to find its identity all season. After a pair of early losses, a down-to-the-wire loss against Saint Francis and a close victory over Butler University, the Badgers don’t necessarily possess the record they wish they did.


McMorris' earns double-double, but Badgers fall to 1-4

The Badgers would have liked to leave Milwaukee and enter the upcoming UNLV tournament on a high note, but Milwaukee had other plans. Behind the strong play of junior guard Jenny Lindner and senior guard Sierra Ford-Washington, the Panthers (3-1) were able to dismantle Wisconsin (1-4) fairly easily by a score of 80-63. Lindner finished the night with 28 points on 9-of-19 shooting.

Badgers remain winless after third quarter collapse

What began as a promising night for Wisconsin women’s basketball ended up being a crushing loss in front of its home crowd. Wisconsin (0-3) welcomed the Dayton Flyers (1-2) to the Kohl Center in what truly was a tale of two halves and would eventually result in Dayton snagging its first victory of the season.

Badgers fall short in first game in Tsipis era

The Badgers’ season, and the Jonathan Tsipis era, did not start as they hoped it would. After two solid showings at the Kohl Center in exhibition matches, the team traveled east to take on the University of Charlotte for the season opener this past Friday. The Badgers lost to the Conference USA team 63-48.

Nicole Bauman

Bauman lights it up from 3-point range

There are certain moments in any sport that define a player’s career: Michael Jordan’s Flu Game in the 1997 NBA Finals, Derek Jeter’s walk-off hit in his final at-bat, Rafael Nadal’s grueling five-set win over Roger Federer in the 2008 Wimbledon final. Nicole Bauman’s historic three-point barrage against Ohio State was her moment.
