21 Mai 2017

Per CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein, the Illini will host DePaul on November 17 in the event started in 2015-16 that pits Big Ten teams against Big East teams.

After playing Georgetown in the first two years of the Gavitt Tipoff Games, Maryland will reportedly meet Butler next season in College Park. IL played at Providence in the inaugural event in 2015 and lost 60-59 to the Friars.

IL is coming off a 20-15 season and NIT quarterfinals appearance in 2016-17 but enters 2017-18 with a new coach in Brad Underwood. The Illini beat the Blue Demons 75-70 on December 7, 1957, in Champaign. DePaul went 9-23 under Dave Leitao in 2016-17 and lost 19 of its last 21 games. (The 10 Big East schools are to play a minimum of six times, apiece.) MSU will have to appear in four of the next five years, while U-M will participate in three of the next five.
