IU basketball: Tickets for the Empire Classic in November have gone on sale

As we’ve previously reported, Indiana basketball is playing in the Empire Classic in New York City as part of its 2023-24 non-conference schedule.

Joining the Hoosiers for the Nov. 19-20 event at Madison Square Garden is defending national champion UConn, along with Texas and Louisville.

Tickets for the event have gone on sale.  A Ticketmaster link to the event can be found by clicking here.  You may need to use the code GAZSOCIAL.

The matchups have not been announced, but a ticket is good for two games. Separate tickets must be purchased for each day of the event.  The Semifinal Doubleheader starts Sunday November 19th at 1:00 p.m. Eastern, and the Championship Doubleheader starts Monday November 20th at 4:30 p.m.

IU holds a record of 14-12 all time in games played at MSG.

The series of games will mark a homecoming for Indiana head coach Mike Woodson, who was the head coach of the New York Knicks from 2012-14. Woodson was drafted 12th overall in the 1980 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks and played with the franchise from 1980-81. He also served two stints as an assistant coach with the Knicks from 2011-12 and 2020-21.

This will mark IU’s second appearance in the Empire Classic. They defeated Washington, 102-84, in the opening round of the 2013 Empire Classic before falling to UConn, 59-58, in the title game.

First played in 1995, the Empire Classic benefits the Wounded Warrior Project.
