Arizona, Indiana finalizing agreement to play on December 10th in Las Vegas


Arizona and Indiana are finalizing an agreement to play a neutral site game on Dec. 10th at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, multiple sources told FanDuel.

There is no timetable on an official announcement.

Both teams are currently ranked in the Top 17 of the ROTHSTEIN 45.

Arizona finished 33-4 last season in its first year under Tommy Lloyd and lost in the Sweet 16 to Houston. Lloyd was named AP National Coach of the Year.

Indiana is entering its second season under Mike Woodson, who led the Hoosiers to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2017. Indiana finished 21-14 last season and should be one of the favorites in the Big Ten next year if 6-9 big man Trayce Jackson-Davis (18.3 PPG, 8.1 RPG, 2.3 BPG) returns to school for his senior season. Jackson-Davis is currently an early entrant for the 2022 NBA Draft, but has retained his college eligibility.
