The Gazelle Group announced the complete bracket for the 2012 Legends Classic on Monday afternoon, which revealed two additional non-conference games on Indiana’s 2012-2013 schedule.

The Hoosiers will host North Dakota State on Monday, Nov. 12 and Sam Houston State on Thursday, Nov. 15.

Regardless of the outcomes of the games at Assembly Hall, Indiana will play Georgia on Monday, Nov. 19 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in the semifinals of the event.

Start times and television information will be announced at a later date for the games at Assembly Hall.

North Dakota State finished 17-14 overall last season and fourth in the Summit League while Sam Houston State finished 13-19 overall and fourth in the west division of the Southland Conference.

North Dakota State was selected for the postseason College Basketball Invitational Tournament (CBI) last March and fell to Wyoming 78-75.

The future schedules page, which now includes a total of eight non-conference games for next season, is available here.

    Exactly 14 weeks til what I suppose is the first game of the year..


    At the risk of opening the tough enough, not tough enough, can of worms I’ll just say this, I’m so ready to watch the Hoosiers play ball I couldn’t care less who it is. I’d be glued to the action even if the first game was against PoFunk U from somewhere deep inside of Siberia.

    Exactly how I feel. If that first game isn’t one of my 10 I get in my student package I’ll be a little upset. I guess I’ll just have to buy an individual ticket for North Dakota State.

    Maybe (hopefully) it’s more like 13 weeks and 4 days, ha. The last 3 years we’ve opened on the unofficial start of the season, the second Friday in November—the day that now is when all the games on ships are played. So I’m guessing we play somebody Friday, Nov. 9.

    Well I understand that everybody starts the season with fresh cupcakes from the “let’s get to the team together” bakery. These two certailny qualify for the role.

    I would say the complete schedule will be released soon by my guess. We are really just missing a few non conference games, and we know the scenarios of who we play in conference besides the dates. Would love to see Kansas on there. I wouldn’t mind going down to Knoxville and see the Hoosiers knock the Vols around either but I would say we stay at home. We do need a road game or two. Evansville, and NC State helped us get on track last year.

    I’d love to see KU as well, and I agree that game at UE did some good for us last year, I think at this point, we’re most likely to just add 3 more home cupcakes. That puts us at 7.5 or 8, depending on what you think of Ball State. Sounds about like what we expected.
