Northwestern will join a trio of NCAA tournament teams in a non-conference event next season in Brooklyn.
The Cats will play alongside Notre Dame, Texas and Colorado as part of the Legends Classic at the Barclay's Center, with games Nov. 21 and 22.
Northwestern will play two of the three teams in Brooklyn. All three squads played in this season's NCAA tournament, with the Fighting Irish advancing the furthest, losing last weekend in the Elite Eight.

Northwestern has played Notre Dame more times than any other non-conference opponent, with the two teams meeting 88 times. Should the squads meet in Brooklyn, it will be the first get-together since 2009. Northwestern has played Colorado nine times, most recently in 2004, and Texas twice, most recently in 1974.
This will be the second straight season with a higher-profile non-conference event for the Cats, who split a pair of games at the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City, losing to North Carolina — which plays in the Final Four this weekend — and beating Missouri.
This year, Northwestern won 20 regular-season games for the first time in program history.
