Marisa Moseley and the Wisconsin women’s basketball program earned a significant win on the recruiting trail on Wednesday afternoon.
Alie Bisballe, a 6-foot-4 forward from Lake City, Michigan, announced her commitment to the Badgers over offers from Michigan State, Illinois State, Bradley, Bowling Green, Iona, Vermont, and several other schools.

“Coach Moseley and her staff gave off such positive energy when I talked to them,” Bisballe told BadgerNotes. “When I first met the staff, they had a warm, genuine welcome, and it felt like a family. Madison is a beautiful city and has a great history behind it.”
Bisballe, who plays for the Michigan Mystics AAU program, took an official visit to Madison in June and got better acquainted with the Wisconsin women’s basketball program and what they’re trying to build.
“On my visit, we first had breakfast at my hotel and got to know the coaching staff,” Bisballe said. “Then we went on a campus tour and saw the football field, academic halls, the Union, Bascom Hill, and the Capital.
“After that, we went to the Kohl Center, had a photo shoot, and saw some of the facilities. We then met with the coaching staff and talked over the pillars of their program, such as a winning mindset, integrity, selflessness, communication, and legacy.”
The vision for Bisballe is to play the “4” due to her versatility. She can pass well for her size, step out and shoot it, protect the rim, or play with her back to the basket. The Michigan native is a nice pickup for the Wisconsin women’s basketball program.
Bisballe joins Notre Dame (WI.) guard Gracie Grzesk as the second commitment in the 2024 recruiting class.
Wisconsin Women’s Basketball Has Reason for Optimism
Despite finishing 10th in the Big Ten standings last season, the Wisconsin women’s basketball program has made noticeable strides under head coach Marisa Moseley.
Although the Badgers went 11-20 overall last season, Wisconsin won six Big Ten conference games for the first time in 10 seasons.
While moral victories will only take you so far, Wisconsin women’s basketball played their best brand of ball at the end of the season and were seconds away from advancing in the conference tournament.
This will be a big season for the Badgers to continue building towards a more sustainable future and creating a winning culture.
