The game was supposed to be played on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.
Wisconsin is 7-1 in its last 8 games. Its most recent loss was against No. 21 Ohio State in Columbus. The Badgers lost 73-55.
The last game the Badgers played was a 71-68 win over Nicholls State without Johnny Davis, who was battling a Non-Covid related illness.
No. 24 Wisconsin will now have to wait and see who its next opponent will be. The time of the game will depend on what team the Badgers will be playing, and is left up for debate at this time.
