The Wisconsin Badgers got some tough news the last few days when the program had to cancel its game against Morgan State due to COVID-19 issues with Morgan State’s squad. However, the Badgers were able to turn those lemons into lemonade yesterday as the program announced a new game to replace Morgan State:
Wisconsin will host George Mason on Thursday in Madison, per release.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) December 22, 2021
Wisconsin’s official release indicates the game against George Mason will be Thursday at 7:00 p.m. (ET). Tickets for the Morgan State game will be considered valid and accepted, which is great news for fans who already purchased tickets.
George Mason presently sits at 7-4 overall and 126th on KenPom. The Patriots knocked off Maryland in November and beat Navy and Georgia earlier this month. It projects to be a much tougher game for the Badgers than Morgan State. We’ll have to see if Wisconsin can protect home court and pull off the win.
