Syracuse and UConn will meet in the semifinal round of the 2K Sports Classic at Madison Square Garden, according to Jon Rothstein of Fan Rag Sports.
Syracuse, Connecticut, Oregon and Iowa were previously announced as the four teams in next season’s 2K Sports Classic field, but the matchups have yet to be officially announced.
