MADISON, WI (WSAU) For the second year in a row, Wisconsin will play Virginia in the Big Ten-A-C-C men’s basketball challenge. The pairings were announced yesterday.
The Badgers and Cavaliers will square off in Charlottesville on December fourth, after Virginia beat Wisconsin 60-to-54 last year in Madison. Forward Joe Harris scored 22 points in that game. He returns to a Cavaliers’ squad coached by Tony Bennett, son of former Badgers, Green Bay, and Stevens Point coach Dick Bennett.
Wisconsin won three-of-its-last-five Big Ten-A-C-C Challenge games, but Bo Ryan’s Badgers are 6-and-8 all-time in the series.
