IOWA CITY — The first game times for Iowa men’s basketball’s 2016-17 season were released Wednesday morning along with Big Ten Network’s entire non-conference television schedule.
The Hawkeyes have three games set to air live on the network.
Iowa home games against Seton Hall on Nov. 17, North Dakota on Dec. 20 and Delaware State on Dec. 22 will be televised nationally, and all three are set to tip off at 8 p.m. at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The game against Seton Hall is part of the second annual Gavitt Games.
Iowa won 13 of its 15 games inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena — going undefeated at home in non-conference — and ranked 19th in the country in average attendance a year ago.
Other notable BTN non-conference games include Oklahoma traveling to Madison, Wis., to take on Wisconsin and Oklahoma State visiting Maryland on Dec. 3. Creighton heads to Nebraska on Dec. 7 and Butler plays Indiana in the Crossroads Classic in Indianapolis on Dec. 17. Dayton plays Northwestern and BYU faces off against Illinois at United Center in Chicago on Dec. 17 as well. Providence plays at Ohio State and St. John’s plays at Minnesota also as part of the Gavitt Games.
The remainder of Iowa’s schedule and start times will be released later this summer, according to a release from Iowa.
