SEATTLE, Wash. — Up by a point early in the second half, the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team was outscored 15-0 over a stretch of 4 minutes, 41 seconds, and never recovered en route to a 80-67 non-conference loss to Washington on Friday night.

The Badgers (6-4) dropped their second straight game and dropped to 2-3 on the road.

Junior forward Michala Johnson led UW with 25 points, hitting 9 of 17 shots from the field and going 7 of 9 from the free throw line. Senior guard Taylor Wurtz added 11 points.

Senior guard Mercedes Wetmore and freshman guard Kelsey Plum added 11 each and freshman forward Katie Collier and junior guard Jazmine Davis each added 10.

UW, coming off a 70-55 loss to Gonzaga, trailed 37-36 at halftime and pulled ahead of the Huskies on two free throws by Dakota Whyte 58 seconds into the second half.
