DALLAS (AP) - NCAA tournament teams Oklahoma and Colorado and defending NIT champion Baylor will play their season openers as part of a tip-off tripleheader.
The Tip-Off Showcase is Nov. 8 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, about 20 miles from the NFL stadium where the NCAA Final Four will be played next April.
Oklahoma, with six newcomers, will play Alabama of the SEC in one of the matchups. The Crimson Tide return three starters, including leading scorer Trevor Releford (14.9 points per game).
Baylor will play former Big 12 rival Colorado for the third straight year. The Bears won a matchup in the 2012 NCAA tournament, but lost to the Buffaloes in the Charleston Classic last fall.
Larry Brown begins his second season as SMU's coach in a matchup against TCU.
