NEW YORK -- Villanova will play Illinois and Indiana will meet Louisville in the Jimmy V Classic on Dec. 9 at Madison Square Garden.
Illinois is a replacement for fellow Big Ten school Maryland which had to drop out because of scheduling issues. It was announced Monday that Maryland will be in the 2016 Jimmy V Classic.
Both Big Ten squads playing in this year's Classic did not make the NCAA tournament, while Louisville reached the Elite Eight and Villanova made it to the round of 32 before being bounced by eventual national champion Connecticut.
