On Tuesday afternoon, it was announced that the Texas Tech men's basketball team will take part in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden.

The Jimmy V Classic is a doubleheader televised each year by ESPN. It is typically played on a Tuesday night in early December. Matchups have not been announced yet but the teams will include UConn, Louisville, Indiana, and Texas Tech.


The last time the Red Raiders played at Madison Square Garden they fell to the Duke Blue Devils 69 to 58. This will also mark the very first time that the Red Raiders have played in the Jimmy V Classic.
