IU to open with Providence at Maui Invitational in Asheville

Indiana will open with Providence at this year’s Maui Invitational.

As previously reported, this year’s invite is being held at the Harrah’s Cherokee Center in Asheville, North Carolina, rather than Hawaii. But the event is still slated to move forward, and IU will tip with Providence on Nov. 30 at 2:30 p.m.

IU is on the same side of the bracket as Texas-Davidson, which tips at noon on Nov. 30. On the other side is North Carolina-UNLV (7 p.m. tip on Nov. 30) and Stanford-Alabama (9:30 p.m.).

The winner of the IU-Providence game will face the winner of Texas-Davidson on Dec. 1 at 1:30 p.m. The losers face off at 7 p.m. that same day. The final day of games is on Dec. 2, including a championship game at 4 p.m.

This is the first piece of IU’s non-conference schedule that has been released. The NCAA’s Division I Council is allowing programs to play as many as 27 games during the regular season, which can include a 24-game slate plus a three-game, multiple-team event.

Practices for men’s and women’s basketball are slated to open on Oct. 14.

  1. Aloha-Dipo! Jeremy Price finally gets that trip to Hawaii!

    Didn’t we once play UCLA at the Maui Invitational? I seem to remember Luau Cinder covering the beaches.
