Wisconsin women upset No. 7 Penn State 63-61

MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Morgan Paige scored a career-high 33 points to lead Wisconsin to a 63-61 upset over seventh-ranked Penn State on Thursday night.

Tiera Stephens scored the game-winner on a putback with 5 seconds left to end the Nittany Lions' 11-game winning streak.

Stephens scored five points and had 11 rebounds and Jacki Gulczynski added 16 for Wisconsin (10-11, 2-6 Big Ten). The victory against a ranked opponent was the Badgers' first since a 48-45 win against Michigan State on January 14, 2010.

Maggie Lucas scored 18 points and Mia Nickson added 11 for Penn State (17-3, 7-1).

The Badgers came into the game having lost 7 of their last eight games.

The Lady Lions routed the Badgers 84-40 at home two weeks ago for their most lopsided victory since 2001.
