Gavitt Games 2017
The 2017 Gavitt Games should be announced soon. Rumors are that Marquette will travel to Minnesota this year. I'd love a game against Northwestern too. Wonder what the other matchups will be.

RE: Gavitt Games 2017
1 thing that we should see- the following teams have sat out already- and thus should be in this year....
Seton Hall, Marquette, Butler, Xavier

I know Mack said they aren't going to be in this year- but then again, Creighton said the same thing last year and they played, while Xavier was expecting last year and was left out.

Full lineup below. Villanova and Georgetown both get skipped. Michigan State still has yet to participate. IMO, this is a very strong set of matchups. We weren't given Rutgers or Penn State, thankfully - and Georgetown gets skipped in a rebuilding year. Very pleased with how they aligned this year.

Minnesota @ Providence, November 13
Purdue @ Marquette, November 14
Creighton @ Northwestern, November 15
Nebraska @ St. John’s, November 15
Indiana @ Seton Hall, November 15
Butler @ Maryland, November 16
Xavier @ Wisconsin, November 16
DePaul @ Illinois, November 17

As long as there's the Champions Classic, I song expect the Spartans to participate.

Everyone has to participate a minimum amount of times.

RE: Gavitt Games 2017
yeah, it's really weird with Michigan St not in yet again. though I wonder if some of it is the fact that Michigan St has not only the Champions Classic, but here's their early schedule-
11/14 vs Duke in Champions Classic
11/23-26 in Phil Knight tournament
11/27-29- ACC/Big Ten Challenge
but then also.....
12/1- Big Ten Conference Game
12/4- Big Ten Conference Game
the 2 of those due to the Big Ten tourney being early this year. So that's already 7 tough games by December 4. You can see not wanting an 8th this year.

Excellent point. They are required to play in the Gavitt Games three times, however, so they will be in it eventually.

I actually think the number is 4 times they are required to play in it. Conceptually that makes sense- 8*8 is 64 and 14*4 is 56. So 6 teams will play in it 5 times, 8 teams will play in in 4 times.
