COLUMBUS, OHIO (WSAU) The Wisconsin women lost a double-overtime game at Ohio State last night, 65-to-59. The Badgers blew a four-point lead in the final 11 seconds of regulation, as they fouled Tayler Hill on a three-point attempt with a second-and-a-half left. She made two free throws and missed the third on purpose, and Amerst Alston scored quickly for Ohio State to send the game to overtime.
The Buckeyes outscored Wisconsin 7-to-1 in the second extra period to decide the contest. Coach Bobbie Kelsey made it clear that her Badgers should have won it in regulation. In her words, “When you have the game, you have to play smart until the final horn.”
Jacki Gulczynski played all 50 minutes for Wisconsin, scoring a career-high 32 points with 15 rebounds. Ashley Adams had 16 points and nine boards for Ohio State, which improved to 3-and-7 in the Big Ten and 13-and-10 overall.
Wisconsin blew a chance to sweep its first season series from the Buckeyes since 2000. The Badgers fell to 2-and-8 in the conference and 10-and-13 overall. They’ll host Indiana on Sunday. -2/8-
