The University of Wisconsin men's basketball team drew the No. 4 seed for the Big Ten Conference tournament and will play a quarterfinal at 1:30 p.m. Friday in Indianapolis against the winner of the first-round game between Indiana and Penn State.

The fifth-seeded Hoosiers face the 12th-seeded Nittany Lions on Thursday at approximately 1 p.m.

The Badgers (23-8) did not play Indiana on the road this season, but a game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse -- the former Conseco Fieldhouse -- would likely feel like one.

UW prevailed 57-50 in the teams' lone meeting, on Jan. 26 at the Kohl Center.

The Badgers swept 12th-seeded Penn State, winning 52-46 on Jan. 31 in State College, Pa., and 65-55 on Feb. 19 in Madison.
