Women's Basketball: Northwestern Wins at Wisconsin
I want to offer congratulations to Northwestern’s women’s basketball team for their win today at Wisconsin. Winning at the Khol Center in women’s hoops might not be as impossible as in men’s, but it’s still tough. Wisconsin came into the game third in the Big Ten and would have moved into second place with a win. Instead, the Wildcats got a 20-point 10-rebound double-double from Amy Jaeschke and used a 17-2 run to start the second half in order to pull out the 68-62 win. Let’s hope NU’s men’s basketball team can model this feat in February. Overall Northwestern is 13-9. 13 wins is the most for an NU women’s hoops team in 14 years. Like men's team, this team has a shot at making it to the postseason this year.
