August 13, 2013Earlier today The Gazelle Group released final details of the 2K Sports Classic that culminates with Indiana, Washington, Connecticut and Boston College converging in New York at Madison Square Garden for games on November 21-22.
As part of the event, Indiana will host the "Bloomington Regional Round" beginning with a Tuesday, November 12th game against Stony Brook. Then on Sunday, November 17th, LIU-Brooklyn will come to Assembly Hall as part of the Bloomington Regional.
No matter what happens in the regional rounds, Indiana will face Washington in New York at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, November 21. That will be the second of two games, tipping about a half hour after the 7 p.m. ET game between Connecticut and Boston College. Both games will be broadcast by ESPN2.
The following night the winners and losers will meet on the same floor. The consolation game will be played at 5 p.m. ET and shown on ESPNU and soon after that game the championship game will be shown that Friday night at approximately 7:30 p.m. on ESPN2.
Indiana has yet to release its non-conference schedule and the Big Ten has yet to release the conference schedule. The league did announce the teams that schools will play only once (single plays), and the Hoosiers are set to only host Ohio State and Iowa, and only travel to Purdue and Minnesota.
Other schools have released schedule details and adding that to other news reports and event press releases, here is how the Indiana men's basketball non-conference campaign is beginning to shake out:
November 12:? LIU Brooklyn in 2K Sports Classic at Indiana (press release)
November 17: Stony Brook in 2K Sports Classic at Indiana
November 21: vs. Washington at Madison Square Garden in 2K Sports Classic, 9:30 p.m. ET approximate tip-off (ESPN2)
November 22: vs. Connecticut or Boston College at Madison Square Garden in 2K Classic (ESPN2 or ESPNU)
December 3: at Syracuse in Big Ten/ACC Challenge
December 7: North Florida
December 10: Oakland
December 14: vs. Notre Dame in Crossroads Classic at Bankers Life
December 20: vs. Nicholls State (per story)
December 22: Kennesaw State (per story)
TBA: Evansville (per news reports, to finish 3-game series)
That's 11 games, two games short of the 13 non-conference games that Indiana has played the last few season. So likely a couple more games to come to light.
Here's a non-conference schedule breakdown by home, road and neutral sites:
Home: LIU Brooklyn, Stony Brook, North Florida, Oakland, Nicholls State, Kennesaw State, Evansville
Neutral: Washington, UConn or BC, Notre Dame
