NCAA Basketball: UNLV at San Diego State

Iowa State announced its non-conference men’s basketball schedule on Wednesday, which includes its annual matchup with Iowa and a trip to the NIT Season Tip-Off.

New Cyclones head coach T.J. Otzelberger will make his regular-season debut at home on Nov. 9 when the Cyclones host Kennesaw State, one four straight home games to start the season. That includes Oregon State on Nov. 12, Alabama State on No. 16, and Grambling State on Nov. 21. Oregon State reached the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament last March.

As previously announced, the Cyclones will play in the NIT Season Tip-Off at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Nov. 24 and Nov. 26. Memphis, Virginia Tech, and Xavier will also play in the tournament.
