Wolves face Bucks in preseason game at UW-Madison

The Minnesota Timberwolves will make the pilgrimage to Badger territory and face the Milwaukee Bucks in a preseason game at the Kohl Center on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

The Bucks return to the Kohl Center for training camp and host the Wolves on Oct. 20, the first full-team appearance by the Bucks in Madison since a preseason game against the Dallas Mavericks at the Kohl Center in 1999.

"We're thrilled to welcome the Bucks back to Madison this fall," University of Wisconsin Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez said in a news release. "I know that basketball fans in our area will enjoy the exhibition game and we're pleased to have an up-and-coming team like the Bucks in our facilities and around our city."

The Bucks played 25 regular season games, 7 playoff games and 5 preseason games in Madison in the early years of the franchise in the 1960s and 1970s.
