The Gopher women's basketball team won their second straight game on Wednesday night as they beat Wisconsin 93-82 at Williams Arena.

Shae Kelley had a big night for Minnesota. She had a double-double with 33 points and 14 rebounds, but she wasn't alone. Amanda Zahui B. also had a big night, scoring 21 points and grabbing 13 boards.

It was Zahui's 18th double-double of the season and Kelley's 10th.

Gopher freshman Carlie Wagner continued to play well. The Big Ten Freshman of the Week put together another solid night with 17 points.
