IU set to play in 2019 Jimmy V Classic

Indiana is slated to return to Madison Square Garden this season.

The Hoosiers will be one of four teams participating in the 2019 Jimmy V Classic, according to a report from college basketball reporter Jon Rothstein. Louisville, UConn and Texas Tech will also join the field.

Official matchups are expected to be released later this spring.

IU has made three previous appearances in the annual early-December showcase event, which is staged by ESPN and aims to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Indiana beat North Carolina in 1999, it topped Pittsburgh in 2009 and it lost to Louisville in 2014.
