Two of college basketball’s premier programs will headline a new non-conference double header in Miami in 2015, according to a report by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
The Hall of Fame will put on a four-team double header at American Airlines Arena, home to the Miami Heat, in November 2015. Kentucky will face South Florida and Ohio State will take on Memphis, according to the report. The teams will play three home games against lesser competition before facing off at the neutral site. ESPN is said to be in discussion to televise the event.
