MADISON, Wis. — The Badgers’ date with the Wildcats is back on, just a few days later than planned.

Wisconsin will travel to Northwestern on Monday and tip off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. CT. The game, originally scheduled for Saturday, was postponed due to COVID-19 issues within Northwestern’s team.

The Badgers are looking to build on momentum gained from Tuesday’s win over Penn State. The victory snapped a three-game losing streak. Tuesday also saw the return of Tyler Wahl, who was forced to sit out the previous three games with  an injury.

Wahl posted 10 points in his return, but it was Steven Crowl who led all scorers with 21 points. Crowl has now taken over for Wahl as the Badgers’ leading scorer and also leads the team in rebounds with 116.

With the rescheduled contest set for Monday, Crowl and his teammates will have a packed week of games. After Monday’s game, the Badgers’ road trip continues on Wednesday against Maryland, and Bucky returns to the Kohl Center on Jan. 28 to take on Illinois.
