KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Wisconsin’s vaunted defense did its job, holding Mississippi to its lowest point total of the year.
It was the suspect offense that failed. The Badgers put up 59 shots against Ole Miss on Friday but made only 15 of them. So Bo Ryan’s team headed home after a 57-46 loss that snapped a six-year string of first-game wins for one of the NCAA’s most consistently successful programs of the past 15 years.
