All eight Gavitt Tipoff Games are televised nationally on either FS1 or BTN.

Arguably one of the best of these events is the Gavitt Games, which pits the Big Ten and the Big East against one another. Palmer was fifth in the Big Ten in scoring at 17.2 points per game while adding 4.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game for the Big Red.

The two finalists in the 2018 NCAA championship game, an April 2 matchup won by the Wildcats, will meet again on November 14 in the Gavitt Games, an annual series of eight contests that pairs teams from the Big East and the Big Ten conferences. Those three formed the core of a program that has made three consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. In two additional Wednesday contests, Seton Hall travels to Nebraska and Marquette plays at Indiana.

Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Illinois will be the home of the Gavitt Tipoff Games. Penn State and DePaul will be meeting. These nine teams won at least 20 games past year. Teams from both conferences already meet in some traditional rivalry games, and those matchups will continue in the upcoming seasons.

The series of games is in honor of the late Dave Gavitt, who founded of the Big East Conference and was a pioneer in the basketball world. The Big Ten and Big East conference offices jointly announced the game dates and opponents Tuesday. Gavitt had a profound and lasting influence on the sport of basketball on the collegiate, professional and Olympic levels and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006.
