Wisconsin took a lead into halftime for the fourth time all season, but the 29-26 advantage proved not to be enough as Wisconsin dropped it's 2nd game of the season, 60-55, to the Washington Huskies at the Kohl Center on Thanksgiving Eve. With the loss the Badgers dropped to 2-2 on the young season while the other UW improved to 3-1 overall.
A game high 22 points from Jazmine Davis led a trio of double digit scorers for the Huskies in the win. Wisconsin was led by their own trio of Taylor Wurtz, Morgan Paige, and reserve AnnMarie Brown who all had 11 points each.
Wurtz is now just 16 points away from the 1,000 point scoring mark in her career.
As you'd expect with five point margin everything was close, but in the end it was the Badgers committing 22 turnovers on the night that hurt them. The Huskies took advantage of those turnovers, scoring 20 points off turnovers, and besting the Badgers by a six point margin in that category.
