Gavitt Games Pairings Announced

Ohio State and coach Chris Holtmann will play at Creighton this season as part of the Gavitt Games

The Penn State men's basketball team returns to the Gavitt Tipoff Games schedule and will play DePaul on Thursday, Nov. 15 at Wintrust Arena in Chicago.

According to reports, the Big East and Big Ten teams will be facing off against each other after they were drawn as opponents in the Gavitt Games. Palmer was fifth in the Big Ten in scoring at 17.2 points per game while adding 4.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game for the Big Red.

This year's Gavitt Games field includes Villanova, the reigning NCAA Champion, and Penn State, the 2018 NIT Champion.

Villanova and MI are expected to meet in the Gavitt Games in November in a rematch of the national title game won 79-62 by the Wildcats last month. Those three formed the core of a program that has made three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. The Nov. 14 matchups include Marquette at IN and Seton Hall at Nebraska as well as the Michigan-Villanova game. Those nine won at least 20 games last season. The series will span eight years, with games played at home sites.

The series of games is in honor of the late Dave Gavitt, who founded of the Big East Conference and was a pioneer in the basketball world.

Ohio State will play at Creighton and Penn State will face DePaul in Chicago on November 15, while the final game will see St. John's play at Rutgers on November 16. Each edition consists of eight games with a couple of teams from both conferences sitting out.

The matchups for the 2018 Gavitt Games were announced on May 14. Gavitt passed away in 2011 and was named to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006.
