The Wisconsin men’s basketball team’s game against Northern Iowa on Wednesday was cancelled after the Panthers announced on Sunday that they were pausing all team activities due to COVID-19 in their program.
The Badgers quickly replaced that contest with a matchup against the Loyola Ramblers on Tuesday at 7 p.m. (BTN) at the Kohl Center. The Ramblers are off to a 3-0 start this season after beating Illinois-Chicago 77-66 on Sunday.
The last meeting between the two teams came in 1998 when the Badgers rolled to a 66-29 win. Wisconsin owns the series advantage 9-6.
It’s the second time this season the Badgers have been forced to adjust their schedule due to an opponent dealing with COVID-19. Wisconsin saw its game against Louisville postponed last week. The Badgers were able to schedule a game with Rhode Island, which they won 73-62 last Wednesday.
