COLUMBUS, Ohio --  The Wisconsin women's basketball team could not outlast Ohio State in a 65-59 double-overtime loss at Value City Arena on Thursday night. Sophomore Jacki Gulczynski didn't get a minute of rest, leading the team with a career-high 32 points and 15 rebounds. 

 Fast Facts
Jacki Gulczynski played all 50 minutes, scoring career-high 32 points and 15 rebounds
Nicole Bauman pulled down career-best 10 boards
• Wisconsin out-rebounded Ohio State 50-36

Wisconsin (10-13 overall, 2-8 Big Ten) had a four-point lead, 52-48, after Nicole Bauman sank two free throws, with 11 seconds remaining in regulation. Ohio State (13-10 overall, 3-7 Big Ten) got down the ball down the court to Tayler Hill who was fouled on a three-pointer with a little more than one second remaining.

Hill made her first two free throws to bring the score to 52-50. After purposefully missing her third free throw, OSU’s Ameryst Alston threw up a prayer off the offensive rebound, making a jumper near the free throw line to send the game into overtime.

"Jacki stepped up big," said head coach Bobbie Kelsey. "She came through and hit some clutch shots when we needed it."

In the first overtime of the game, Gulczynski scored four-of-the-six Wisconsin points. After Hill missed a layup for the Buckeyes, the game went into double overtime.

Ohio State scored first, going up 60-58 and setting the tone for the second overtime. Junior center Cassie Rochel fouled out, giving Daria Kryuchkova an opportunity to step up for the Badgers. Kryuchkova made one-of-two bonus free throws to bring Wisconsin within one with 4:27 remaining.

It came down to free throws for Ohio State, and the Buckeyes went 3-for-5 from the charity stripe, which was just enough to sneak out the win. Alston sealed the victory with a layup to bring the Ohio State lead to 65-59.

The Badgers went without key player Tiera Stephen, who injured her knee early in the first half and missed the rest of the game.  With a short bench, the Badgers had to rely on freshmen to step up, as guard Tessa Cichy play a career-high 35 minutes.

"We're mismatched in every spot, the kids played hard," said Kelsey. "I'm proud of them, they persevered to take this team to overtime and to still only lose by a couple of points, that says a lot about these kids."

Wisconsin won the battle of the boards, pulling down 50 rebounds. Freshman guard Nicole Bauman recorded a career-high 10 rebounds, half of which were offensive, while Cichy added a career-best 5. Leading the Badgers was Gulcyznski with 15.

Wisconsin returns to the Kohl Center on Sunday, Feb. 10 to face Indiana at 2 p.m. Help the Badgers support Breast Cancer awareness by taking advantage of the Think Pink offer of two tickets and two pink beanie hats for $15.
