Numerous sources with knowledge of the men’s basketball team’s scheduling have confirmed that the team is close to playing in the Preseason NIT and against Indiana next season. The sources asked to remain anonymous because Cornell’s schedule has not been formally announced yet. None of the sources knew if a contract had been signed for either event, which would make them officially part of the Red’s schedule, but they did confirm that, in both cases, negotiations are ongoing or had been completed.
Cornell Director of Athletic Communications Jeremy Hartigan declined to comment. Cornell coaches could not be contacted because the team was traveling to Anaheim, Calif., for the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament.
