UW Hoops Team Headed to Disney World

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin says it plans to play in the 2010 Old Spice Classic over Thanksgiving weekend at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Fla.

The Badgers will be joined by California, Notre Dame, Temple, Texas A&M, Boston College, Georgia and Manhattan in the tournament that began in 2006. Each team in the tournament is guaranteed three games.

It will be the fifth time in the last six seasons that Wisconsin has traveled to a nonconference tournament. The Badgers went to Maui in 2009, the Virgin Islands in 2008 and 2005 and South Padre Island in 2006.
