BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) -Butler will meet Georgetown and Indiana will face Pittsburgh in this year's Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden.
The pairings for the Dec. 8 doubleheader were announced Wednesday.
This will be the 15th annual Jimmy V Classic and the seventh played in New York City. The games are part of the fundraising effort for the V Foundation for Cancer Research, which is named for the late Jim Valvano, who led North Carolina State to the national championship in 1983.
It will be the first ever meeting between Butler and Georgetown, while Indiana holds a 4-3 lead in the series with Pittsburgh.
