Badgers will play at Xavier Nov. 13 in Gavitt Tipoff Games

May 15, 2018

The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team will play at Xavier on Nov. 13 in the Gavitt Tipoff Games.

The teams played last season at the Kohl Center, with the Musketeers posting an 80-70 victory thanks to a 12-0 run late in the game.

Xavier coach Chris Mack left for Louisville following the 2017-18 season. He was replaced by Travis Steele, who has spent the past 10 seasons as an assistant with the Musketeers.

The Badgers will host a game in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, though that matchup has yet to be announced. Other highlights of UW’s non-conference schedule include road games against Marquette and Western Kentucky along with a trip to the Bahamas for three games in the Battle 4 Atlantis.
