Michigan will face Syracuse in the semifinals of the Legends Classic on November 26th. The semifinals be played in a double header which tips off at 5:30 PM and Michigan will be playing in the second contest. Georgia Tech and UTEP will face off in the other semifinal game.

The championship and consolation games will be played the next day (Nov. 27), with the consolation game starting at 5:30 pm (championship to follow).  The games will all be televised on HDNet (yes, really). The Michigan/Ohio State football game will also be played on November 27th (time TBA) so it’s possible that a 3:30 kick off could interfere with the consolation game.

Michigan also faces Bowling Green (Nov. 18) and Gardner Webb (Nov. 21) in the pre-bracket games, however those games don’t affect who advances to play in Atlantic City. You can see the full bracket and ticket information at the Syracuse athletics website.

    ATT U-Verse carries HDNet, but I don’t know of any others. Cuse is a tough draw since they’re by far the most talented team left. That being said, they are also badly underperforming on APR which made it laughable that Yahoo Sports did an article earlier about Scoop Jardine receiving an education on basketball with Team USA.

    They do lose Wes, Rautins and Onuaku but they are a significantly more talented team on paper.

    May Michigan develop some three-point shooting by that game.

    I am pretty sure that my DirecTV offers HDNet on a different tier than what I currently have. But, I can always order the more expensive tier for one day and then cancel – should work out to about 15 cents. I plan on going on the 26th, so this would only be for the consolation/final.
