Indiana and Louisville have agreed to a multi-year series in men’s basketball, it was announced on Friday morning. The deal also includes three football games.
The two basketball programs, who have combined for eight national championships, will begin playing in 2016 with a New Year’s Eve game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Full details are available after the jump.
The bracket for the 2015 Maui Jim Maui Invitational was officially announced on Tuesday afternoon and the two favorites in the event, Indiana and Kansas, are on opposite sides of the bracket.
The Hoosiers, ranked No. 14 in the ESPN.com early top 25 for next season, will open with Wake Forest, which finished last season 13-19.
Indiana will play Wake Forest to open the 2015 Maui Jim Maui Invitational on Monday, Nov. 23 at the Lahaina Civic Center, according to Andy Katz of ESPN.com.
Vanderbilt vs. St. John’s is the other matchup on Indiana’s side of the bracket.
In February, word broke that Louisville and Indiana were in talks for a three-year series. Cardinals coach Rick Pitino said at the time the two teams could play during the 2015-2016 season at Lucas Oil Stadium.
On Wednesday at IU’s first “on the road” tour stop at Huber Winery, athletics director Fred Glass said the two sides continue to talk, but do not have plans to play next season.
“No update other than both sides wanna do a deal,” Glass said. “We’ve had very serious conversations about that. Like everything else, the devil’s in the details. There are conference challenges and schedule challenges, but coach Pitino and everybody at Louisville and coach (Tom) Crean and everybody at Indiana wanna get a deal done and I expect that to happen in fairly short order. I don’t think it will be for this upcoming season.”
Indiana’s opponent for the 2015 Big Ten-ACC Challenge will be Duke, ESPN announced on Wednesday.
It will be the first meeting between the two programs since 2006, when Duke knocked off the Hoosiers 54-51 in Durham in the Big Ten-ACC Challenge.
The game will be played at Cameron Indoor Stadium on Wednesday, Dec. 2. A tip time and broadcast information will be announced at a later date.
The Blue Devils won their fifth NCAA championship in April with a 68-63 win over Wisconsin at Lucas Oil Stadium. There will be plenty of production for Mike Krzyzewski to replace as Quinn Cook graduated and Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow and Tyus Jones all left early for the NBA draft.
Duke will return just one starter in Matt Jones, but will also bring back a pair of experienced big men in Amile Jefferson and Marshall Plumlee along with Grayson Allen, who was a pivotal contributor in the Final Four.
