Baylor will play Wisconsin at 8:30 on Nov. 20 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. This is the first matchup for the teams since the 2014 Sweet 16.

The CBE is a four team tournament. Each team is guaranteed two games. The winners of the first games play the next day for the championship, while the losers vie for third place.

Wisconsin finished last season in the Sweet 16 after knocking off No. 1 seed Villanova in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The Badgers lose a lot of talent in the backcourt, but they return a possible preseason all-american in Ethan Happ—a 6-foot-10 big man who handles the ball well.

This will be a fun two day tournament where all four teams have a chance to win the title. Regardless of what happens before Big 12 play, Baylor basketball has once again assembled an excellent non-conference schedule.
