Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball: George Mason fills Thursday’s opening schedule
After canceling their game Thursday against Morgan State earlier this week due to COVID concerns among the Bears program, the Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team were on the hunt for a new opponent. Luckily, they managed to find one!
The George Mason Patriots (7-5 overall, 0-0 in Atlantic 10) travel to the Kohl Center on Thursday night to face Wisconsin at 6:00 p.m. CT on Big Ten Network. The women’s team will still play in Eastern Illinois at noon CT at the Kohl Center to begin the doubles program.
For all of you attending the game, UW notes, “Tickets for Thursday’s game, which initially provided for the Badgers to face Morgan State, will remain valid and accepted as usual despite the change of opponent. “
The Patriots beat Morgan State by 37 points earlier this year, if you’re looking for a way to compare the team Wisconsin was going to play with the team they are going to play now. George Mason also beat Maryland at College Park before going on a five-game losing streak. They have now won their last three games, including a 23-point victory over American University on Tuesday night.
We’ll have a full preview of the game for you on Thursday.
