Marquette reveals date of men’s basketball matchup with Wisconsin

  • 0
Brad Davison - UW vs. Marquette

Wisconsin guard Brad Davison had four points and three assists before fouling out as the Badgers fell to the Marquette Golden Eagles 67-65 on Dec. 4, 2020, at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee. 

The Marquette men's basketball team announced its non-conference schedule for the upcoming season on Monday, and it features a Dec. 4 matchup against Wisconsin. 

While the Badgers hadn’t officially announced the date, the I-94 rivalry series has occurred annually since 1958, so it was expected to be on the schedule. 

UW and Marquette have met 127 times, starting in 1917. The Golden Eagles defeated the Badgers 67-65 last season, but UW holds the 68-59 all-time edge. 

State Journal beat reporters Colten Bartholomew, Todd Milewski and Abby Schnable get together on Zoom to talk about former Badger Cole Caufield in the Stanley Cup Finals, name, image and likeness rules, current Badger basketball player Jonathan Davis in the FIBA U19 World Cup and more. Plus, some more info on Abby, who’s hit the ground running since joining the State Journal staff.

Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski was fired after last season following a seven-year tenure. The Golden Eagles hired Oregon, Wisconsin, native Shaka Smart as Wojciechowski’s replacement. 

This year’s game, which falls on the same date as the Big Ten football championship game, will be at the Kohl Center. A time has yet to be announced.

This game adds to UW’s non-conference schedule that already features a Gavitt Games matchup against Providence, the Maui Invitational and the Big Ten/ACC challenge against Georgia Tech. 

UW has yet to release any other information about its non-conference schedule.
