When IU men’s basketball announced the 2019-20 schedule on Aug. 23, there wasn’t an exhibition game scheduled before regular season play started.

On Wednesday afternoon, the program announced one exhibition matchup Oct. 29 with Gannon University, a Division II school. 

Last season, Gannon went 11-18 overall before losing in the first round of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference tournament. It’s the first time in four years that Gannon will face a Division I team in exhibition play.

IU is 26-0 against non-Division I teams in exhibition play since 2004-05. Before the matchup with the Golden Knights, Hoosier fans will get their first glance of the team Oct. 5 with Hoosier Hysteria.
