The slate includes high-profile matchups vs. Notre Dame, Duke and Virginia. The Blue Devils and Cavaliers are both ranked in the top-16 of KenPom.com’s preseason rankings.
Michigan State will have to replace a pair of former stars in Cassius Winston and Xavier Tillman. However, despite those losses, the Spartans are No. 11 in KenPom’s preseason rankings.
A formal Big Ten basketball conference schedule has not yet been released. However, Nebraska AD Bill Moos said on Tuesday that it would be released by Wednesday.
#Huskers AD Bill Moos says we should have a basketball schedule later tonight or tomorrow.
