Earlier this afternoon, the Big Ten released 2021-22 schedules for the entire conference season. Wisconsin basketball opens the season at home and finishes with a pair of home games in their 20-game conference slate.

Replacing a number of senior contributors will be a challenge for the 2021-22 Badgers as sophomore Jonathan Davis steps into a lead role alongside a number of freshman. The guidance of senior leadership will be found with returning guard Brad Davison, who is back for his fifth and final year as a Badger.

Wisconsin will be vying for an NCAA Tournament berth alongside a stacked Big Ten conference. Here is a look at their complete conference schedule, which begins on December 8:
