The Arizona and Indiana basketball programs are going to become very familiar with each other over the next few years.
The series is notable for the fact that the two are among the marquee programs in the country, but also because they are coached by the Miller brothers.
Fanrag Sports is reporting that the two programs have come to terms on a three-year series that would culminate in a game at the mecca of basketball; Madison Square Garden.
Arizona, coached by Sean Miller, and Indiana, coached by Archie Miller, have agreed to terms on a series that will carry the program into the 2022 season. Archie Miller was an assistant coach under his brother at Arizona from 2009-2011. He left to take a head coaching position with the Dayton Flyers, before accepting the job at Indiana prior to the upcoming season.
Logistics are still being worked out, but they have reached a tentative agreement to play a home-and-home series. The final game of the three will be played in Madison Square Garden during the 2021-22 season.
Indiana has a longer climb back to relevancy in college basketball. The Hoosiers went 18-16 under the final season under coach Tom Crean. Meanwhile, the Arizona Wildcats enter the upcoming season ranked in the top 25, and as favorites to win the SEC.
