Monday, May 14, 2012
BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -- Indiana will host North Carolina in a high-profile showcase for the resurgent Hoosiers during next season's ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
North Carolina State will visit Michigan on Nov. 27, and Ohio State will play at Duke the next day during the 14th annual event.
Coming off its first appearance in the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament in a decade, Indiana adds a strong recruiting class to returnees Cody Zeller and Christian Watford. On Nov. 27, the Hoosiers face a Tar Heels team hit hard by graduation and NBA defections.
The other Nov. 27 matchups announced Monday by ESPN are Minnesota at Florida State, Maryland at Northwestern, Iowa at Virginia Tech and Nebraska at Wake Forest. The Nov. 28 games are Virginia at Wisconsin, Michigan State at Miami, Purdue at Clemson, Georgia Tech at Illinois and Boston College at Penn State.
