The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department is asking fans to arrive early for Wednesday's men's basketball game against Northwestern and be prepared for longer lines to enter the Kohl Center as UW-Madison Police and event staff will be conducting random security checks.

The increased security also will be in place for Friday's men's hockey game against Alaska-Anchorage, though UW associate athletic director Justin Doherty says "there's no increased security threat or anything like that."
