The year in pictures, part 2

The University of Wisconsin women's basketball team finished ninth in the Big Ten with a 5-11 conference record and was 11-18 overall in 2005-06. Sophomore Jolene Anderson was a second-team All-Big Ten choice and classmate Janese Banks received honorable mention all-conference.

It was a tough year for Wisconsin, which went 11-18 in Lisa Stone's third season as head coach. However, Jolene Anderson, pictured here trying to make a pass between two Purdue players, had a terrific season, averaging 17.3 points and 7.0 rebounds per game to lead the Badgers. (AP Photo/AJ Mast)
