Wisconsin basketball to play at unique venue in 2022
Wisconsin basketball will get a unique venue opportunity for both men’s and women’s teams this fall.
According to Jeff Potrykus with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, head coach Greg Gard confirmed Monday that the Badgers will play at American Family Field in Milwaukee on Nov. 11. American Family Field is a retractable roof venue and the home of MLB’s Milwaukee Brewers.
The men’s game on Nov. 11 is scheduled to be against Stanford. The women’s team will face Kansas State on the same date.
Gard also revealed its something he would like to work into a regular opportunity on the schedule:
