Tip time for IU basketball versus Florida State moved

The Big Ten / ACC Challenge has seen a couple postponements due to COVID-19.

The ripple effect has caused a change to the tip time for Indiana’s Wednesday matchup with Florida State.

The IU basketball program announced on Monday afternoon that the Florida State game will now be played at 7:15 p.m. ET on Wednesday.  The television designation changed as well.  The Hoosiers and Seminoles will now air on ESPN.

Indiana defeated the Seminoles 80-64 in connection with the event last season in Bloomington.  Senior guard Devonte Green made five three-pointers and scored 30 points in the contest.  Indiana shot 55 percent from the field and outrebounded FSU 35-25 for the game.

IU is 8-11 all-time in Big Ten / ACC challenge games.

The game will mark the sixth meeting between FSU and IU and it will be the first trip to Tallahassee for the Hoosiers.  Indiana has never lost in the series.  Here are the five previous meetings:

  • Dec. 3 2019:  Indiana 80-64 (Bloomington)
  • Nov. 25 1992:  Indiana 81-78 (at New York)
  • Mar. 26 1992:  Indiana 85-74 (at Albuquerque)
  • Mar. 16 1991:  Indiana 82-60 (at Louisville)
  • Dec. 8 1975:    Indiana 83-59 (at Indianapolis)

It was announced on Monday that the Big Ten / ACC Challenge contests between Michigan and N.C. State, and Louisville and Wisconsin have both been postponed.  Both games were scheduled to be played on Wednesday.
