BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WANE) – Before Indiana can prove they’re among the best in the Big Ten, the Hoosiers will go through a juggernaut of a non-conference schedule.

On Friday, Indiana released the non-conference schedule for the men’s basketball team. Before the games start to count, IU will host Marian University and Saint Francis for a pair of exhibition matchups.

The Hoosiers open the season on Monday, Nov. 7 against Morehead State. Indiana’s first road game is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 18 at Xavier as part of the Gavitt Tipoff Games.

Following a road trip to Cincinnati, Indiana will face Miami (Ohio) at Gainbridge Fieldhouse. Other key matchups include a home game against North Carolina in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, a neutral site game against Arizona in Las Vegas, and a road game at Kansas.
