GAME THREAD: Wisconsin Badgers vs. Georgetown Hoyas

New, 58 comments

The Badgers take the court at historic Madison Square Garden to face Georgetown in the first game of the 2K Classic in New York. It's not a true road game, but it will probably feel like one.

Last year around this time, Wisconsin and Georgetown met in the Battle 4 Atlantis in a hotly-contested semifinal. Despite a quiet night from Frank Kaminsky, the Badgers prevailed, 68-65, behind Sam Dekker's 17 points. This season the two teams meet in Madison Square Garden as part of the 2K Classic, likely for the right to play Duke on Sunday.
