The game will mark the second consecutive meeting between Virginia and Wisconsin in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and the fourth meeting overall.

Wisconsin defeated Virginia, 66-56, in the 1999 Top of the World Classic in Fairbanks, Alaska. The only other meeting between the two teams came in the Milwaukee Classic during the 1974-75 season when Virginia won 86-78 in Milwaukee, Wis.
Wisconsin finished the 2012-13 season with a 23-12 record and reached the NCAA Tournament for the 15th consecutive season. Virginia posted a 23-12 record and advanced to the NIT quarterfinals.
The Cavaliers have an 8-5 record in the Challenge, while Wisconsin is 6-8. Virginia has won three consecutive games in the Challenge and sports a 5-1 home record in the Challenge.
The ACC and Big Ten split last year's Challenge with six wins apiece. In the event of a tie, the Commissioner's Cup remains with the conference that won the previous year, which was the Big Ten in 2011. The ACC holds a 10-3-1 Challenge record, winning the first 10 events (1999-2008), while the Big Ten won the next three (2009-2011).
ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise all 12 games of the two-day event.
