Fumagalli's clutch play sparks UW comeback

With 4:52 left in the second quarter, the Utah State Aggies took a timeout. Up 10-0 over the No. 9 team in the country, USU didn’t want to let UW back into the game. The timeout, taken right before the Badgers were flagged for a false start that resulted in a third-and-12 situation, would help keep enough time on the clock for the Aggies to possibly march down the field and pad their 10-point lead. All they needed was a stop on third down, but senior tight end Troy Fumagalli had other plans. An incomplete pass would’ve left the Badgers facing a fourth down outside of field goal range at the Utah State 49.


Young leads UW past Rutgers into second day of Big Ten Tournament

The No. 11 seed Badgers opened up Big Ten Tournament play against the No. 14 seed Rutgers, and the two were tied 6-6 with 3:16 left in the first quarter. The game was never tied again, as the Badgers (3-13 Big Ten, 9-21 overall) went on to the win the first quarter 14-6, the first half 27-13, and ultimately the game 61-55 against the Scarlet Knights (3-12, 6-24). “We've talked a lot as a team since the game ended at Iowa on Sunday night about doing something that nobody in the program currently had done: win a first round game,” head coach Jonathan Tsipis told Redshirt senior forward Avyanna Young led her young squad with 20 points, and also added four rebounds and three assists. While Young did pour in almost a third of her team’s points, Rutgers’ Shrita Parker did her best to keep her team afloat with 24 points in the game.
