Finally, after months of waiting, the Indiana Hoosiers released their men's basketball schedule today.

It includes 19 home games at Assembly Hall, as well as two tournaments, where the Hoosiers will play strong opponents.

Among the non-conference teams that the Hoosiers will tip off against are Maryland, in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, Pittsburgh, in the Jimmy V Classic, and Kentucky, in the annual Indiana/Kentucky rivalry basketball game.

In the conference schedule, which begins on Dec. 31, Indiana plays Purdue twice this season, but only plays Michigan State once, at home.
