The Wisconsin-Northwestern men’s basketball game that was postponed from Saturday due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Wildcats’ program will be made up on Monday afternoon in Evanston, Ill., the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and the Wisconsin State Journal reported Friday.

The fast turnaround was necessitated because of a lack of other options in the teams’ schedules.

The makeup game on Monday would create a quick turnaround for Northwestern, which is scheduled to play at Nebraska on Tuesday.

Wisconsin is scheduled to play at Maryland on Wednesday.

Northwestern postponed two games this week. The Wildcats’ contest at Iowa, originally scheduled for Wednesday, was rescheduled for Jan. 31 in Iowa City.

The Wildcats (12-5, 3-3 Big Ten) have lost two games in a row. They last played on Sunday, falling 85-78 at Michigan.

The Badgers (12-5, 4-3) were ranked as high as No. 14 in the country before losing three in a row earlier this month. They beat visiting Penn State 63-60 on Tuesday in their most recent game.
