A lot could be at stake when the Gophers men's basketball team plays March 5 in the regular-season finale against border rival Wisconsin at the Kohl Center in Madison.
The Big Ten announced Tuesday that game will start at 5 p.m. and be televised on Big Ten Network.
The Badgers are in a Big Ten title race with Purdue and Maryland. Minnesota can pick up another signature win for its NCAA tournament resume. This could be the most meaningful Border Battle and final Big Ten regular season game in years.
The Gophers haven't won in Madison since a 78-74 overtime victory on Jan. 15, 2009. The Badgers escaped with a 78-76 overtime win against the Gophers on Jan. 21 at Williams Arena in Minneapolis.
The regular-season finale could have seeding implications for the Big Ten tournament, which runs March 8-12 in Washington D.C.
