Big Ten schedule details released

The Wisconsin men's basketball team has a slightly better idea about its 2011-12 conference schedule as the Big Ten released its one-play designations on Thursday.

For the upcoming season, the Badgers will play every team in the Big Ten twice except for single-game contests against Indiana, Northwestern, Michigan and Purdue.

Games against the Hoosiers and Wildcats will take place at the Kohl Center, while contests against the Wolverines and the Boilermakers are both designated as road games.

The Big Ten schedule will consist of 18 games for the fifth straight season, but with the addition of Nebraska to the conference, there will now be four single-game opponents for each team. From 2006-07 through 2010-11, each team had two opponents it played just once.

2011-12 Big Ten Opponents
Home and Away: Illinois, Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Ohio State, Penn State

Single-Game: Indiana (Home), Northwestern (Home), Michigan (Away), Purdue (Away)
