MADISON, Wis. -- The Wisconsin men’s basketball team announced its non-conference schedule for the 2014-15 season Thursday, highlighted by a visit from Duke and trips to the Battle 4 Atlantis, Marquette and Cal.

“Every year it’s our goal to put together a difficult non-conference schedule that will get us ready for Big Ten play,” head coach Bo Ryan said. “Last season we played five teams in the non-con that ended up winning their conference. I think this year’s slate will be another challenging one.”

The Badgers home schedule begins with the annual free Red/White Scrimmage on Sunday, Oct. 26. Wisconsin will host UW-Parkside in an exhibition game before tipping off the regular season at the Kohl Center against Northern Kentucky on Nov. 14.

UW will participate in the three-game Battle 4 Atlantis in The Bahamas from Nov. 26-28 in a talented field that includes North Carolina, Florida, Oklahoma, UCLA, Georgetown, Butler and the Badgers’ first-round opponent UAB.

Preseason top-5 pick Duke will visit the Kohl Center on Dec. 3 for the 2014 Big Ten/ACC Challenge. UW will then make back-to-back trips to Milwaukee to face rivals Marquette on Dec. 6 and Milwaukee on Dec. 10.

The Badgers will take another road trip to Berkeley, California to take on the Bears on Dec. 22. The non-conference slate rounds out against the University of Buffalo on Dec. 28.

The Big Ten schedule is set to be announced in late August. In conference play, Wisconsin will host Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Penn State and Purdue. Road trips include Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State and Rutgers.
