The 2010 Old Spice Classic bracket was revealed Thursday and the Badgers drew MAAC host Manhattan in the first round.
Wisconsin was placed in the top half of the bracket, which also includes Boston College and Texas A&M. Georgia, Notre Dame, Temple and California are in the bottom half.
The draw won't exactly help UW's strength of schedule, but it does give the Badgers a great chance of advancing to the championship game of the underrated tournament.
The game against Manhattan will tip off on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 25) at 1 p.m. on ESPN2.
The bracket below lists all start times and TV listings for the entire tournament.
