“Having the opportunity to visit the children’s hospital was a great experience for me and my teammates," Paige said. “It’s important to take time out of our schedules to put smiles on children’s faces.”

The Badgers open the 2013-14 season on Nov. 3 with an exhibition against Winona State in the Kohl Center. The regular season kicks off at home on Nov. 10 vs. Drake.
