MADISON, WI (WSAU) The Wisconsin women’s basketball team was held scoreless for over eight minutes in the second half last night, as the Badgers lost to Iowa 65-to-56 in Madison.

The game was tied before Iowa’s big run started with 12 minutes to go. The Hawkeyes rattled off 14 straight points before Wisconsin’s Morgan Paige finally hit a three-pointer with 3:53 left. The Badgers got to within seven with just over two minutes left, but could get no closer.

Wisconsin was out-shot 38-to-33 percent for the game, and the Hawkeyes had a dominant 45-25 rebounding edge. Paige led Wisconsin with 18 points. Morgan Johnson had 23 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Hawkeyes. And Racine native Samantha Logic almost had a triple-double for Iowa with 12 points, 10 boards, and nine assists.

The Hawkeyes improved to 2-and-1 in the Big Ten, and 13-and-4 overall. Wisconsin fell to 0-and-3 in the conference, and 8-and-8 overall. The Badgers will play at Michigan on Sunday.
