The Boston College Athletic Department announced Wednesday afternoon that the Boston College men’s basketball will compete in the 2017 Tip-Off Tournament hosted by The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. The tournament will take place on Nov. 18-19 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.
On the first day of competition, the Eagles will take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders of the Big 12. On the other side of the bracket, the Northwestern Wildcats of the Big 10 and the La Salle Explorers of the Atlantic 10 will play.
Following the first day of competition, the winner of the two games will play each other, and the losers of the two games will play each other on Saturday. That means the Eagles could potentially play either Northwestern or La Salle, depending on the results of the two games on Nov. 18.
BC will also play two non-bracketed games in the tournament. The Eagles will play Maine on Nov. 10 and Sacred Heart on Nov. 14.
The Eagles played the Fairfield Stags on Dec. 21, 2016 at Mohegan Sun. The Eagles lost 89-83.
