Villanova Wildcats hosting Michigan Wolverines in 2018 Gavitt Games is exciting

Game times will be announced at a later date.

For the college basketball fans unaware, the Gavitt Games is a series between the Big Ten Conference and Big East Conference to start off a new college basketball season, which kind of worked out ideal for the NCAA.

The Illini are 1-1 in the Gavitt Tipoff Games, losing during the inaugural year at Providence and beating DePaul last season.

The slate of games between Big Ten and Big East opponents was announced Tuesday.

Jon Rothstein of first reported that the Buckeyes will travel to Creighton this season as part of the annual series pitting teams from the Big East against the Big Ten.

"Being back in the lineup for the Gavitt Tipoff Games is something we have been looking forward to", said Penn State coach Patrick Chambers.

He had further added, " Shamshera allows me to do everything that I had imagined and it's a very exciting project for me". The Yash Raj Films shared a film announcement teaser with fans where Ranbir's first dacoit look has been unveiled.

The distinctive series between the two conferences is named to honor the late Gavitt, who had a profound and lasting influence on the sport of basketball at the collegiate, professional and Olympic levels.

Broadcast assignments for each matchup will be determined by the conference of the home team, which means IN and Marquette will likely play on BTN.

Other confirmed non-conference games for IN next season include a December 8 game IN Bloomington against Louisville and a December 15 matchup against Butler IN the Crossroads Classic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. This is the third time IU will participate in the event. IU was 16-15 last season, while Marquette finished 21-14. Wisconsin and Xavier met in last year's Gavitt Games when the Musketeers defeated the Badgers on the road.

The game will be played November 14, at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall in Bloomington.

Scheduled through 2022, the Gavitt Tipoff Games will be played on consecutive days in the first full week of the college basketball season.

This will be IU's third confirmed non-conference game for next season along with a home game against Louisville on December 8 and a matchup with Butler in the Crossroads Classic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on December 15. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006.
