Tipoff for Sunday's Game With Wisconsin Moved

The game is set to start at 11:30, to accommodate those who want to watch the Bears-Packers game.

EVANSTON, Ill. - Northwestern and Wisconsin, in conjunction with the Big Ten Conference, have announced that the tipoff for Sunday's men's basketball game at Welsh-Ryan Arena has been moved up to 11:30 a.m. The matchup is being televised by Big Ten Network.

The change has been made to accommodate fans and to avoid conflict with the National Football League's NFC Championship Game between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears. That game, which is being played at Soldier Field in Chicago, is set to kick off at 2:05 p.m.

The contest between the Wildcats and the Badgers was originally set to get underway at noon.

Tickets for Sunday's game, and all Northwestern games, can be purchased at NUsports.com or by calling 888-GO-PURPLE
