UW-L hoops taking on Wisconsin Badgers in November

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The La Crosse connection to the Wisconsin Badgers basketball team has grown in the past few years.

Badgers Head Coach Greg Gard has recruited some of the city’s best prospects in Kobe King and the Davis twins.

Now another link as Gard and UW-La Crosse are teaming up for a couple of big events in the next few months.

The Eagles play the Badgers in an exhibition game on Friday, November 1 at the Kohl Center in Madison.

It is the first time since 2010 the two teams played in an exhibition game. It is part of a effort by the Badgers to annually play WIAC teams in exhibitions.

In addition, Coach Greg Gard visits La Crosse on September 12 for a fundraiser. It’s part of his “Garding Against Cancer” initiative to raise money for those impacted by cancer in the Coulee Region.

The event is planned at the UW-L Student Union from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Details on tickets come at a later date.
