MILWAUKEE, Wis. – A slow start turned into a strong finish for the Wisconsin women’s basketball team Thursday night at the Klotsche Center in Milwaukee. Wisconsin (2-0) gave Milwaukee (0-1) a five point head start before finding its offensive footing and posting an 85-60 win over the Panthers.
Five Badgers scored double-digits, led by Michala Johnson’s 21 points. Jacki Gulczynski and Taylor Wurtz posted double-doubles, while Dakota Whyte and Nicole Bauman each scored in double-digits. It is the first game since 2009 that the Badgers have had five player score in double figures.
Wisconsin’s 2-0 record is the best start of the Bobbie Kelsey era.
The Badgers scored 53 points in the second half, the most points scored by the Badgers in a half since the 2007 season.
UW returns home to the Kohl Center to host Northern Illinois on Sunday. Tip-off is at 2 p.m.
