Not only will Indiana and North Carolina square off in the 2016 Big Ten-ACC Challenge, the two programs will collide in the 2018 Jimmy V Classic.

According to Zach Osterman, Indiana has signed a contract to participate in the 2018 Jimmy V Classic against the Tar Heels on Dec. 4, 2018.

Indiana played Louisville in the 2014 Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden.

This brings the list of confirmed non-conference games for the 2018-2019 season to three. Indiana will host Louisville at Assembly Hall on Dec. 8, 2018 and also play Butler in the Crossroads Classic on Dec. 15, 2018.

In 2017, confirmed non-conference games include Louisville at the KFC Yum! Center on Dec. 9, Notre Dame in the Crossroads Classic on Dec. 16 and a trip to Madison Square Garden in November to play in the 2K Sports Classic. Other programs participating in that event include Providence, Washington and Virginia Tech.

    My first thought was who would be on the IU roster at that time.
    A couple of “maybes” in this list …
    Juniors Curtis Jones, Devonte Green, Grant Gelon, and De’Ron Davissenior
    Senior Juwan Morgan
    Plus sophomores Al Durham, Kris Wilkes, Tremont Waters, Jordan Tucker, and another big. (lot of wishing here … lol)

    I love the NYC games. Should really help Chuck Martin with recruiting… I hope… Ready to see some more ’17 commits!

    MSG is an awesome facility too. The first and only time I was there was to watch IU beat Washington in the 2K Sports Classic in 2013. Surprisingly, there were a lot of IU fans/alumni there.

    Will be a nice coming out party for Romeo.

    I think I read that NYC has 3rd most IU alums of any city. The other two being Indy and Chicago. By number, not percent of course.

    Adding a premium game in the B1G ACC challange and you’ve got a nice non-conference slat. If we have a game in Gavett games (B1G Big East) then all of the sudden we have as tough a non-conference as anyone.

    I was at that game too. It was pretty cool to see all the IU fans walking around after the game too. I love it when the Hoosiers come to NYC.

    Why not schedule UNC for annual series?
