'Hoos to Host Wisconsin in ACC/Big Ten Challenge

The Virginia basketball team's biggest road win last season came at Wisconsin last November, during the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Later this year, the Badgers will be visiting Charlottesville.

The two programs will meet for the second consecutive season as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, it was announced Wednesday. Wisconsin will visit Virginia on December 4.

The Cavaliers beat Wisconsin 60-54 last November 28 in Madison to improve to 8-5 all-time in the Challenge. Virginia has won its last three Challenge games, and is 5-1 at John Paul Jones Arena against Challenge opponents.

Virginia coach Tony Bennett spent four seasons as an assistant at Wisconsin, including time under current Badgers coach Bo Ryan.
