IOWA CITY, Iowa -- It all came down to the last four minutes of the game and the Wisconsin women’s basketball team couldn’t stop Iowa’s Jamie Printy as the Badgers fell at Iowa 71-60 on Thursday night. Printy scored 12 straight points as the Hawkeyes (15-5, 4-2) went on an 18-5 run over the last 4:11 to pull away and win.

“We let one player beat us, basically that’s what we did,” said UW head coach Bobbie Kelsey of Printy’s performance. “We had a good game plan and when you go under screens on the best shooter on the court … We talked about that over and over again and we’re just not following the game plan. It’s disappointing.”

Cassie Rochel scores career high 17 points
• Rochel and Jacki Gulczyski tally double-doubles
• Badgers turn ball over only 12 times

The Badgers (9-11, 1-6) trailed 27-22 at the half but rallied in the second period to force six ties and eight lead changes.  UW led 55-53 with 4:54 to play on a Jacki Gulczynski 3-pointer before Printy went to work. The senior guard scored 12 points over the next 2:18 to give the Hawkeyes a 65-55 lead with 1:53 to play.  Wisconsin ran out of time as Iowa went to the free throw line, making 4-of-4, to seal the win.

Printy finished with a game-high 29 points as Iowa had four players in double digits.

Wisconsin was led by a career-high 17 points from Cassie Rochel. The 6-4 post also tied her career high with 14 rebounds to record her third career double-double. Sophomore Jacki Gulczynski also had a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, marking the first game since Indiana on Feb. 23, 2012, that the Badgers had two players with a double-double. Junior Morgan Paige added 14 points for UW.

“(Cassie) did a nice job of making herself available,” said Kelsey. “She’s come a long way and if there are any positives, it’s her in this game, showing that she’s capable of scoring and getting rebounds when she puts her mind to it. “

After getting outrebounded by 20 boards in the first meeting of the season between the two teams on Jan. 10, the Badgers finished just three rebounds short of the Hawkeyes tonight, 36-33.

UW also did a good job taking care of the ball, tallying 12 turnovers for the second straight game. The Badgers dished off 12 assists, led by eight from Tiera Stephen.

After shooting 31 percent (9-of-29) from the field in the first half, Wisconsin shot 42.9 percent (15-of-35) in the second half to finish at 37.5 percent for the game. UW took 26 3-point attempts, making five for 19.2 percent.  Iowa shot 49 percent (25-of-51) for the game, including 41.7 percent (5-of-12) from behind the arc.

Paige and Gulczynski both ended their streaks of consecutive free throws made as the Badgers went 7-of-11 (63.6 percent) from the line.

Neither team could control the game for the first 10 minutes as the score was knotted at 13 with 7:27 to play in the first half. Iowa went on a 6-0 run to take a 19-13 lead with 4:10 to play. A Tessa Cichy layup stopped the run, but the Hawkeyes went on another 6-0 run to take their largest lead of the half (25-15) with 3:01 to play in the period.

But the Badgers got their offense on a roll, outscoring Iowa 7-2 over the last three minutes to pull within five, 27-22, at the half. Gulczynski had five points in the comeback.

Wisconsin continued to rally early in the second half, outscoring the Hawkeyes 10-5 to tie the game at 32 with 15:51 to play. Rochel made a layup and was fouled by Morgan Johnson, converting on the old-fashioned three-point play.

The Badgers took their first lead of the game on the next basket as Stephen hit a jumper to put UW up 34-32 with 15:21 to play. Wisconsin had it biggest lead of the game, 43-39, with 11:48 remaining on a Rochel layup.

The two teams traded leads over the next six minutes until Printy’s run put the game away.

Wisconsin has its first bye of Big Ten play this weekend and doesn’t return to action until Jan. 31 when it hosts eighth-ranked Penn State in the Kohl Center.

“We need people being consistent,” said Kelsey of what her team needs to do against the top team in the conference. “We need these performances and a little more from other people. I think we’re not doing ourselves the service we can do ourselves by not doing what we’re supposed to do on the court.”
