Badgers head to Bahamas for Battle 4 Atlantis tournament

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — It’s already been a busy week for the Badger men’s basketball team.

On Monday, they left for the Bahamas. Tuesday, Wisconsin hit the hardwood for practice ahead of tipping off on Wednesday in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament.

The Badgers open against a 3-1 Dayton squad that recently fell out of the AP Top 25. Then they will either face the reigning NCAA champions, Kansas, or N.C. State.

Regardless of which team they face, Greg Gard knows it’s going to be a nice early measuring stick for his team.

“First and foremost we have a game against Dayton that’s going to be, you know, it’s the best team by far that we’ve played all year,” Gard said. “It’s going to be an opportunity for us to show if we can get better because we are going to have to in a big way.”

The game gets underway at 1:30 p.m.
