UW women triumph over Ohio State
Paige nets 28 In 68-49 win
MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Women’s basketball team hadn’t beaten Ohio State in 20 tries over the span of 12 years. Until Sunday, that is, when they took down the Buckeyes in grand fashion, 68-49.
Wisconsin rode the hot hand of Morgan Paige in the victory. Paige scored a game-high 28 points, including a perfect 11-1 from the free throw line. Wisconsin set a school record, shooting 15-for-15 from the charity stripe as a team.
The Badgers improve to 9-10 overall and 1-5 in the Big Ten. Up next, they’ll travel to Iowa City to play the Hawkeyes on Thursday.
