Men’s Basketball

Four games of Northwestern’s 2017-18 non-conference schedule are now set in stone.

The Wildcats will play in a two-game tournament Nov. 18 and 19 hosted by the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut, as announced in a Wednesday news release.

NU will play La Salle on Nov. 18 and either Texas Tech or Boston College on Nov. 19.

The Cats will also receive two guaranteed home games at Allstate Arena because of their tournament participation, hosting Saint Peter’s on Nov. 13 and Sacred Heart on Nov. 24.

None of the opponents qualified for the NCAA Tournament in 2017 and only one — either Texas Tech (of the Big 12) or Boston College (of the ACC) — is a member of a power conference.
