UConn opens 2K Sports Classic with Detroit, Boston University

UConn’s non-conference schedule continues to take shape. On Tuesday, the school announced that the Huskies will open the 2K Sports Classic with home games against Detroit and Boston University.

Detroit visits Connecticut on Nov. 14 while BU comes to town on Nov. 17. The locations of both games have yet to be announced.

Boston University returns its top seven scorers from a squad that went 17-13 a year ago. Detroit, coming off a 20-win season that culminated in an NIT berth, lost three starters, including second-round NBA draft pick Ray McCallum.

Following the “regional round” of the 2K Sports Classic, UConn moves to the Championship Round in Madison Square Gardne, where it will renew its rivalry with Boston College on Nov. 21. The winner takes on the winner of Indiana/Washington in the title game.
