Redmon, No. 23 Gonzaga defeats Wisconsin 70-55

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Senior point guard Jazmine Redmon scored 15 points, one shy of her career high, as No. 23 Gonzaga pulled away from Wisconsin in the second half Tuesday night for a 70-55 win.

Danielle Walters scored eight of the final 13 points for Gonzaga (8-1), which won its sixth straight, when she stepped in after Redmon picked up her fourth foul. Walters finished with 10, Sunny Greinacher had 12 points and Keani Albanez 10.

Both teams had nice runs in the first half before a 3 by Taylor Wurtz gave the Badgers (6-3) a 29-28 lead at the break. But Gonzaga took control after that. GU opened the second half with a 9-0 run. The Badgers closed within two before a 10-0 Gonzaga run made it 52-40 with 9:10 left. Redmon had eight points in the surge.

Paige Morgan led Wisconsin with 19 points and Taylor had 12.
