Women’s Basketball: Badgers take down Ball State before falling in Hoopfest championship game

The Badgers’ women’s basketball team spent their Thanksgiving holiday in the Bahamas capital city of Nassau, playing the Ball State Cardinals in the semifinal on Friday and the Razorbacks of Arkansas in the championship round the next day. The Badgers took care of business in their first contest, but stumbled down the stretch in the championship, taking home second place out of four on Providence Island.

Wisconsin (5-2) was the favorite against Ball State (4-3), but as has been the theme with Badger victories thus far in 2019, the game began as a close affair. The Cardinals successfully answered Badger baskets with tempo and consistency.
