The University of Miami men's basketball team will open the Gildan Charleston Classic against Drexel, as announced Tuesday.

Miami and Drexel will face off at 3 p.m. Nov. 20 at TD Arena in Charleston, S.C.

In the ensuing round, the Hurricanes will play either Southern California or Akron the following day.

Four other teams are competing in the tournament: Charlotte, Cornell, Penn State and South Carolina. There will be 12 games over three days in a bracketed format.

Five years ago, Miami captured the Charleston Classic with victories over Tulane, UNC Wilmington and South Carolina.

The Hurricanes open the 2014-15 season in Gainesville against the rival Florida Gators on Nov. 17.
