Georgia Tech will play UTEP in the championship round of the Legends Classic men’s basketball tournament in Atlantic City on Nov. 26. Michigan will play Syracuse in the next game at 8 p.m.
The game will start at 5:30 p.m. and will be on HDNet. Additional television coverage will be announced at a later date. The winners will play at 8 p.m. Nov. 27. The consolation game is at 5:30 p.m.
UTEP went 26-7 overall, 15-1 in Conference USA last season.
Georgia Tech, which went 23-13 last season and reached the second round of the NCAA tournament, will open the Legends Classic by hosting Albany on Nov. 17 and Niagara on Nov. 19.
It’s called a championship round because it’s the last series in the event. Odd, I know.
