Feb. 4, 2013
MILWAUKEE - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee men's basketball team will play IUPUI in the annual BracketBusters event.
The game is set for Sat., Feb. 23, in Indianapolis, Ind. The contest will tip off at 3 p.m. EST/2 p.m. CST.
As part of the BracketBusters contract, IUPUI will play a return game in Milwaukee either next season or in 2014-15.
This season, IUPUI is 6-19 and has dropped nine-straight games.
The Panthers and Jaguars squared off at the U.S. Cellular Arena a year ago, with Milwaukee claiming a 62-49 win. This is the second time Milwaukee has been drawn against a Summit League team in BracketBusters, with UWM having been pitted against North Dakota State in 2009.
The BracketBusters contest is part of a season-ending stretch that has Milwaukee on the road for four of its final five games. Before that run, UWM plays three-straight home games, starting Thursday against Detroit.
