Matchups for Basketball Hall of Fame Classic announced
Another in-season event for the 2015-16 season has been finalized, as the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced the matchups for the Basketball Hall of Game Classic on Thursday.
The most noteworthy programs participating in the multi-team event are Kentucky and Ohio State. Unfortunately, the Wildcats and Buckeyes won’t play each other during this event. They’ll be two of the four teams playing November 27 in Miami, with Kentucky playing South Florida in the Basketball Hall of Fame Classic bracket matchup and Ohio State taking on Memphis in the Basketball Hall of Fame Invitational bracket.
This isn’t your usual multi-team event setup either, as there will be a total of five teams in each of the two brackets. Prior to their games in Miami, Kentucky and South Florida will each get to play three home games. Also in the Classic bracket are Albany, Boston University and NJIT.
