The Indiana Hoosiers will be returning to the Madison Square Garden at the start of the 2017-18 season.

Annually held before Thanksgiving, the 2K Sports Classic has given us memorable championship contests like Texas-California, Alabama-Villanova and Mississippi State-Arizona.

The Hoosiers took part in the 2K Sports Classic in 2013, where they lost to the eventual champions UConn and Shabazz Napier by one point.

The Hoosiers most recently played in Madison Square Garden in 2014-15 when they made two trips there. Their first match-up saw them lose to Louisville despite James Blackmon putting Montrezl Harrell...

...before our second trip a few weeks later when Yogi Ferrell did his damnedest to save us against Georgetown.

Lets hope our next contest is a little more successful than recent trips.
