MADISON, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Wisconsin men’s basketball team released its Big Ten schedule today.
The Badgers have an especially tough schedule in February, when they’ll play four teams that went at least 12-and-6 in the conference last season. They’ll start with Ohio State on February first, against a Buckeye team that defeated the Badgers in last year’s Big Ten Tournament title game. Other February road games are at Illinois, Iowa, and Michigan – last season’s N-C-A-A runner-up.
Wisconsin’s February home contests are against Michigan State, Minnesota, and Indiana – the defending Big Ten regular season champion.
Bo Ryan’s Badgers will open conference play on January second at Northwestern. Wisconsin’s regular season opens November eighth against Saint John’s in Sioux Falls South Dakota.
