Badgers Blow Halftime Lead; Fall to Phoenix

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Senior Julie Wojta scored a career-high 29 points to help No.18 Wisconsin-Green Bay defeat Wisconsin 65-49 Friday night.

Green Bay (10-0) trailed 34-28 at halftime, but took control when Wojta hit back-to-back baskets to spark a 13-2 run that started with 12:36 remaining and ended with the Phoenix taking a 53-44 lead. They never trailed from there, shooting 60 percent after halftime and scoring 31 points off 15 turnovers.

Taylor Wurtz led the Badgers (4-8) with 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range. Morgan Paige added 12 points for Wisconsin, which made only five second-half buckets and has lost three in a row for the second time this season.

Megan Lukan and Sarah Eichler each added 10 points for Green Bay, which has won 30 straight regular-season games, the second-longest streak in program's 38-year history.
