WISCONSIN — Jordan Wiggleinton didn’t get a call on Thursday about getting an invite to the NCAA women’s tournament or even being invited to the 2016 tournament.
He got a call from an agent.
The Milwaukee Badgers goalie told a news outlet that a Wisconsin agent told him that if he could go to the U.S. tournament, the Badgers would offer him an opportunity.
Wigglestock, who was a member of Wisconsin’s 2015 NCAA tournament team, made two appearances for the Badger team that finished seventh.
Wiggstock is the No. 2 goalie in the country and has been playing with a chip on his shoulder this season.
Wisconsin’s coaches have said that Wiggleton is a guy that is not afraid to get in the way of his team.
But the Badges head coach, Bret Bielema, said the Badgies don’t want to give up on him.
Bielemas, the former Wisconsin coach, was the Bad Gophers coach for seven years.
He was also the Badging’s coach for three seasons, winning three national championships with the BadGophers.
“We’re not going to go down without a fight,” Bieleas said at the NCAA tournament news conference.
Bielesa also said that Wisconsin would not be accepting any invitations to the next Women’s NCAA tournament if Wiggleston is not invited.
The Badgers have had a busy spring schedule.
They have five games against top-10 teams in March.
The last two games will be played at home against Wisconsin and Wisconsin State.
The next game is Friday night against the University of Iowa.
UW will play Minnesota on Saturday.
“I don’t think we should take it for granted,” Bielesas said.
“Jordan is a really good player.
I think that’s a guy who wants to do well.
“But I think for this program, this year, we’re going to have to find another goalie, someone who can take over for Jordan.” “
Wigglestons team has won nine of its past 11 games. “

Wigglestons team has won nine of its past 11 games.
The Wigestons last loss came on April 18 when they fell to No. 6-ranked Michigan.
Wigstons teammates have a combined total of 17 points in those 11 games, which is good for fifth in the Big Ten and the Big 12.
“A lot of people said that Jordan’s the best goalie in college hockey right now,” Wigglestone said.
Wiggson, a native of Bismarck, N.D., is a native Badger and the team captain.
He has two assists and three goals in his past four games.
