Badger men prepare to welcome Duke to Kohl Center

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- For the first time in three years, the Badger men's basketball team will host a game in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and for the first time ever Duke is coming to Madison.

The Badgers have only faced the Blue Devils once before, losing 82-58 in the challenge two years ago at Duke.

Some might consider this quite a coup to have the Blue Devils in the Kohl Center, but don't tell that to Badger coach Bo Ryan.

"If I have one more person ask me how we got Duke to come to the Kohl Center. I don't know! They're picked to finish 2nd behind Carolina. I'm just happy we have a quality opponent for our fans and our players," Ryan said.

Wisconsin is 4-1. Duke is 6-0. Tip off for the Badgers and Blue Devils set for 8:15 Wednesday night at the Kohl Center.
