Field set for Blue and Gold Classic

Yesterday MU announced the field for the 45th Pepsi Blue & Gold Classic. MU will host the event at the Bradley Center on December 1-2. Unlike past 'classics' this year's vintage will offer a strong mix of programs:

  • - Princeton (the long-time Ivy League power);
  • - NDSU (a program that delivered the most humiliating regular season defeat in the history of the University of Wisconsin-Madison basketball program last year);
  • - Northwestern State (Steve Alford still has nightmares about Iowa's loss to the athletic Demons in March).
The Big East has not been released the 2006-2007 matchups, but its widely expected that the league will move to an 18-game confernece schedule. MU will also host the University of Wisconsin-Madison at the Bradley Center this year.
