MADISON, Wis. – Twenty Big Ten Conference games and five non-conference matchups await the Wisconsin women’s basketball team in 2020-21, head coach Jonathan Tsipis announced on Monday.


“We are excited to compete in the Big Ten expanded schedule this season, the finest basketball conference in the country,” said Tsipis. “With the opportunity to play top-25 teams almost every game, the Big Ten has done a great job of spreading out games to give us the opportunity for our student-athletes to have a great season.


“As always, the road to Indianapolis and the Big Ten Tournament will be a great challenge but collectively we are excited for the chance to play.”


Wisconsin’s (12-19 in 2019-20) season opens on Wednesday when it hosts Miami (Ohio) in the Kohl Center at 2 p.m. The Badgers also play Western Illinois, Prairie View A&M, Valparaiso and Nebraska-Omaha in non-conference home games.


The Big Ten season kicks off on Dec. 5 when the Badgers travel to Iowa. Five league teams are ranked among the top-25 teams in the Associated Press preseason poll, led by No. 12 Maryland. Other ranked teams include Indiana (#16), Northwestern (#17), Ohio State (#20) and Michigan (#25) while Rutgers receives one vote.


The UW Athletic Department previously announced that all Badger home games will be played without fans in the stands for an indefinite period of time due to the COVID-19 pandemic. UW had announced earlier in the fall that there would be no season tickets for basketball and season ticket holders have already been refunded or are in the process of being refunded.
