Following a 67–34 tune-up win Wednesday against UW-Whitewater, the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team takes on North Florida Tuesday night at the Kohl Center. The Badgers are looking to build off a 2018-2019 season in which the team finished with a 15-18 record, an improvement from previous years under Head Coach Jonathan Tsipis.For Wisconsin, it will be a challenge this season replacing senior leader Marsha Howard. Howard, a member of the All-Big Ten second team last year, provided Wisconsin with consistent scoring, averaging 14.7 points per game. One player that will look to shoulder the load is sophomore star, Imani Lewis. As a freshman last year, Lewis shined and finished the season second on the team in scoring, averaging 12.2 points per game. Lewis started on the right foot again last week against Whitewater, tallying 15 points.Women’s basketball: Wisconsin’s heroic tournament run ends in 2OT loss to MichiganThe University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team (15-18, 4-14 Big Ten) battled the fourth-seeded Michigan Wolverines (21-10, 11-7) and suffered Read…Like Wisconsin, North Florida also looks to build off of an average 2018-2019 season.
