Badger women drop their Big Ten home opener

A strong second half for the Iowa Hawkeyes dealt Wisconsin an 82-65 loss in the Badgers Big Ten home opener at the Kohl Center.

Wisconsin (8-7 overall, 1-2 Big Ten) rallied from 16 points down to get within three of the Hawkeyes, 35-32 at halftime.

The second half saw Iowa pick up a couple of runs, including a 14-2 run that put the Hawkeyes up 70-53 with just over 7-minutes to play.  The Badgers would get within 10 points with 3:42 to play, but that’s all the closer they would get.

Wisconsin shot 40% from the field and 40% from 3-point range.  Morgan Paige finished the game, sharing game-high scoring honors with 20 points.
