Texas MBB to face Northwestern in Legends Classic

New, comment

The Wildcats should provide a good non-conference test for the ‘Horns.

The semifinal round of the Legends Classic at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on November 21 will feature the Texas Longhorns and the Northwestern Wildcats, organizers announced on Wednesday.

After facing off against Eastern Washington in the Erwin Center during the regional round on November 17, the ‘Horns will head to the Big Apple to face a Wildcats team that tied a school record with 20 wins last season and returns 10 of the 13 players to form the fourth squad under head coach Chris Collins.

If Texas manages to advance to the finals, it would face off against the winner of the Notre Dame vs. Colorado contest. If Texas loses against Northwestern, it will play in the consolation game.

ESPN will televise the event, which is now in its 10th season.
