GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Wisconsin Badgers basketball game against Northwestern will not be played this Saturday due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Wildcats program.

Northwestern and Wisconsin are currently working with the Big Ten Conference to find another time to play the game in Eveanston, Ill. They will honor any tickets for the game once it is rescheduled.

The Badgers next game is now Wednesday, Jan. 25 at Maryland. Tip-off between the Badgers and Terrapins is set for 6 p.m. CT.
