Women’s Basketball: Badgers face Indiana, Illinois following tough loss to Nebraska

After holding a double-digit lead in the beginning of the fourth quarter, the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team (10-10, 2-7 Big Ten) fell in heartbreaking fashion to Nebraska (15-5, 5-4) Saturday.

Wisconsin will look to recover in two big road games this week, first traveling to Bloomington Thursday night against Indiana (16-5, 6-3), then to Champagne Sunday against Illinois (10-9, 1-7).

Though the Badgers out-rebounded Nebraska and had a higher field goal percentage, Nebraska was ultimately able to hold off the Badgers. In the loss, Wisconsin got contributions from a variety of scorers with three players scoring in double-digits.
