Duke, Wisconsin to play on national TV Dec. 2


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin will host Duke in one of the final games of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Dec. 2 in front of a national television audience.

Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan says Duke will be one of the best teams in the ACC and that coach Mike Krzyzewski's Blue Devils are always well-prepared and well-coached.

The Badgers were 2-0 against the ACC last season with wins at Virginia Tech in the 2008 Big Ten/ACC Challenge and against Florida State in the NCAA tournament.

Duke has the fourth most wins in major college basketball program and reached the round of 17 in the NCAA tournament last season. The Blue Devils have never lost in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, posting a 10-0 mark.

The game at the Kohl Center will tip at 8:15 p.m. on ESPN.
