Wisconsin men’s basketball to face George Mason Thursday


The Wisconsin men’s basketball team has scheduled a new game against George Mason, set for Thursday night at the Kohl Center, after being notified that previously scheduled Morgan State was unable to travel to Madison due to COVID-19 complications within its program.

The Badgers and George Mason Patriots (7-5,0-0 Atlantic 10) are set to tip off at 6 p.m. (CT) on Big Ten Network as part of a Thursday men’s and women’s doubleheader at the Kohl Center. The Badger women’s basketball team will play Eastern Illinois at noon.

Tickets for Thursday’s game, which had the Badgers originally scheduled to face Morgan State, will remain valid and accepted as normal despite the opponent change.

In accordance with UW-Madison COVID-19 guidelines, all fans attending UW men’s basketball games, and all Kohl Center events, will be required to wear masks at all times when inside the Kohl Center regardless of vaccination status, unless actively eating or drinking, according to Wisconsin Athletics.
