SEATTLE -- Wisconsin’s hot first half shooting fell flat in the second stanza, as the Badgers dropped an 80-67 decision to the University of Washington in Alaska Airlines Arena Friday night.  

The Badgers were 14-of-28 (50 percent) in the first 20 minutes of action before their shooting turned cold in the second. Wisconsin (6-4) opened the second stanza 1-of-13 over the first seven minutes and Washington (3-3) took advantage, extending its lead to 55-41 in that span.

Wisconsin was never able to close the gap and Washington held on to a double-digit lead for the remainder of the game.
