Huskers basketball to host Seton Hall in Gavitt Tipoff Games

Start time and television information will be announced at a later date. Palmer was fifth in the Big Ten in scoring at 17.2 points per game while adding 4.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game for the Big Red.

This game will take place on the Musketeers' home court at Cintas Center in Cincinnati, Ohio on November 13.

The eight Gavitt Tipoff Games will be played on four-consecutive days in the first full week of the 2018 college basketball season beginning on Tuesday, Nov. 13.

The Gavitt Tipoff Games are an annual early-season series played between the two conferences and named in honor of Dave Gavitt, founder of the Big East and basketball visionary.

Jets fall to Knights while attendance slumps at whiteout street party
They outscored Nashville 11-3 in their final two games at Bridgestone Arena where the Preds were 28-9-4 during the regular season. Unable to find much to cheer about from the play of their team, fans had to be prompted by the Jumbotron to "Make some noise".

It's hard to believe it was only last month in which the Villanova Wildcats claimed their second NCAA title in three seasons after a thrilling 79-62 win over the Michigan Wolverines. The Nov. 14 matchups include Marquette at IN and Seton Hall at Nebraska as well as the Michigan-Villanova game. Those nine won at least 20 games last season. Wisconsin and Xavier met in last year's Gavitt Games when the Musketeers defeated the Badgers on the road. The series will span eight years, with games played at home sites.

Since Villanova (Big East) and Michigan (Big Ten) happen to play in each of these conferences, this announcement nearly seemed too good to be true for college basketball fans, no matter which team they happen to root for.

Nebraska will host the Pirates on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Teams from both conferences already meet in some traditional rivalry games, and those matchups will continue in the upcoming seasons.

This will be the third time the Illini have been a featured team in the Gavitt Games, they beat DePaul past year and lost at Providence in 2015.
