Per the report, the Badgers are scheduled to be in France from Aug. 7-17. It will serve as an opportunity for the team to play against competition at the highest level during the offseason.
Wisconsin ended the 2021-22 campaign with a 25-8 record, winning a share of the B1G title. The Badgers also reached the NCAA Tournament, advancing to the Round of 32.

Wisconsin has appeared in four NCAA Tournaments under Gard’s leadership.
