Part of a benefit double-header (Coaches v. Cancer). Could have been an ever higher marquee, but 17 NCAA runner-up against 16 national champ should be one of the most appealing games of the early season.

Tickets go on sale when & how?

goodness sakes that would be a bucket list item for me to go to Madison Square Garden to watch Gonzaga play Villanova (Nova is another catholic university basketball program I love)

The date is Tuesday, Dec. 5 (http://espnmediazone.com/us/press-releases/2016/12/top-caliber-field-espns-2017-jimmy-v-mens-basketball-classic/).

I don't believe times or ticket information have been announced yet, though you could probably monitor either of these two sites to see when ticket information is announced/available: http://espnevents.com/jimmy-v-classic/tickets/ or http://www.thegarden.com/

Where are you seeing that the event will be on Tuesday December 5th? I can't recall where I saw this but I recall reading on link from this board that the game would be a Tuesday in November? I plan on making the trip out to NY to se the game and do some sight-seeing.

The UConn/Cuse matchup will be a good one too. The old Big East powers go to war again.

It's probably going to be weird for Boeheim next season to not have Mike Hopkins by his side on the bench. He has been with him for ages.

Jimmy V Classic is always the first Tuesday in December since it's an ESPN-hosted event. Those 2 weeks of the Zags schedule will be loaded coming off 3 games in the PK80 in Portland over Thanksgiving week. Would hope we schedule a fairly low quality cupcake for the game in between though Nova might be down a little next year losing both Hart and Jenkins from the backcourt.

If you click on the words "Tuesday, Dec. 5" in my post, I linked the source (ESPN Press Release).

LOL... reminds me I need to do some final analysis....

That being said... I am most assuredly going. May be attending with a Nova fan from here at work.

don't think nova is going to drop at all...they had no inside game this past year and that will be fixed...they had a monster 5 star freshman pf/c omari spellman ruled ineligible who will be a game changer for them. also will be getting phil booth back from medical redshirt.
