Due to the Covid-19 issues currently present within the team, Louisville’s scheduled game at Wisconsin this Wednesday in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge has been postponed. It has not, however, been canceled, which is good news.

Here’s the release from U of L:

The University of Louisville’s planned Dec. 9 men’s basketball game at Wisconsin in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge has been postponed.

“Our men’s basketball program is still paused indefinitely and we will look for an alternate opportunity to play Wisconsin if possible,” said UofL Vice-President/Director of Athletics Vince Tyra. “We will continue to communicate regularly with Wisconsin, the ACC and Big Ten.”

UofL paused all men’s basketball team-related activities indefinitely last Thursday due to a positive COVID-19 test and accompanying contact tracing measures among individuals within the program. The Cardinals’ scheduled Dec. 4 game against UNC Greensboro was cancelled. The team is adhering to ACC and university protocols.

Louisville has won its first four games of the season, playing those four at home in the KFC Yum! Center in a seven-day period. The Cardinals moved into the Associated Press Top 25 today, debuting this season at No. 25.

Wisconsin is 3-1 and coming off a buzzer-beating loss to rival Marquette on Friday night. The Badgers are No. 13 in the latest AP top 25 poll.

Let’s get healthy and (hopefully) get this game played at some point.
