    I'm assuming everyone knows their OOC schedule....and others.

    Any match up's you're really looking forward to?

    After the last years asswhooping in the Champions Classic, I'm looking forward to preseason #1 MSU in the same tournament. Also, looking forward to rolling into Texas Tech. *Id still rather it be AFH

    For Texas

    1. Georgetown - First game of the tournament. Big East schools for the most part are well coached. Reason why the Big 12 created the challenge with the conference.
    Need to win to play Duke or California. Really want Texas to win this tournament

    2. Purdue- Good early season test. Played one of the best games of the year last year in Austin

    3. LSU- Big 12/SEC challenge

    4. Texas A&M nice warmup game for the season. Get to play this the same weekend as Big 12 Championship Game

    12/3 Vs Florida State
    12/10 Vs UConn
    Vs Princeton (TBA)

    FSU game should be a really, really good gauge as to where we are...Glad its at home.

    Naaah...All three are at home. I've seen worse Indiana teams beat teams much better than those three.

    I like their style. Its a good test. Princeton should be rather decent this year. Good, OOC game.

    Plus it was them, Notre Dame, or Portland State-.....So.....

    Home opener against UVA.

    Both teams are young/inexperienced. It's a chance to gauge the talent level. And a win to start the season, against the defending champs would garner some early season attention and maybe some favorable poll treatment.

    I always look forward to the annual beat down of the Cards. This season it will actually count as a quality win ;)

    For Duke, certainly MSU and Kansas. Elsewhere around the country, I'll say:

    Michigan State vs. Kansas (hopefully) in the Maui Invitational
    Memphis at Tennessee
    Iowa State at Oregon State
    West Virginia at Pittsburgh
    Virginia at Purdue
    Kansas at Villanova
    North Carolina at Gonzaga
    Georgia at Arizona State
    Illinois at Arizona
    Syracuse at Georgetown
    Oregon at Michigan
    Maryland at Seton Hall
    Kentucky at Texas Tech
    Baylor at Florida
    LSU at Texas

    Some Mid-Major Love:
    Saint Mary's vs. Wisconsin
    New Mexico State at Arizona
    Utah State vs. Florida
    Western Kentucky vs. Louisville
    Utah State at Saint Mary's
    NC State at UNC Greensboro
    Belmont at Western Kentucky

    Still can't believe we lost that 2016 Elite 8 game. Hurts a lot less now though.

    Heckuva game. Excited to see the rematch.

    Curious, do you have a rough idea of who starts for UVA? On paper, I would assume Clark, Morsell, Key, Diakite, and Huff are the 5 best players. But would Bennett play Key, Diakite, and Huff together?

    I could see Woldetensae getting the nod over Morsell but reports on Morsell are that he's our best defender as a first year we've ever had. I would love to see us go big at times with Key, Diakite, and Huff but I doubt it happens too often. Bennett likes to have multiple ball handlers so it would not surprise me if Clark, Morsell, Woldetensae, Key and Diakite are the starters. We also just lost Badocchi off the team too so we'll see how that impacts our depth.

    Just realized we play Arkansas, at home. Jesus. We've played them more the past year, than we have the past 100..Or so it seems. That should be a solid test. But who knows with their new coach. Arky's got some dudes that can play.

    Well considering they played at Bloomington last year, I doubt they will. IU played at Bud Walton. Lost by one. Missed a damn bunny that would have won the game...Oh well.
