Wisconsin basketball to play Xavier in 2018 Gavitt Games

Michigan guard Zavier Simpson goes up for a layup in the second half of their NCAA national championship game against Villanova at Alamodome in San Antonio on Monday

Start time and television information will be announced at a later date.

All eight Gavitt Tipoff Games are televised nationally on either FS1 or BTN.

Watching Villanova pull off the epic run they did during last year's tournament by winning each game by double-digits, including the championship game against MI.

If this does end up being the case, that rematch in the 2018 Gavitt Games will be exciting for Villanova and MI since both teams will be looking to make early statements about being serious contenders.

Jon Rothstein of FanRagSports.com first reported that the Buckeyes will travel to Creighton this season as part of the annual series pitting teams from the Big East against the Big Ten. Those three formed the core of a program that has made three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.

Ohio State will play at Creighton and Penn State will face DePaul in Chicago on November 15, while the final game will see St. John's play at Rutgers on November 16.

The Gavitt Tipoff Games concludes with St. John's playing at Rutgers on Friday, Nov. 16. IL did not participate in the 2016-17 season, with Big Ten teams playing a minimum of four times in the eight-year series that runs through 2022. Teams from both conferences already meet in some traditional rivalry games, and those matchups will continue in the upcoming seasons.

Played in honor of David Gavitt, the first commissioner of the Big East, this event is entering its fourth season. Gavitt passed away in 2011 and was named to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006.
