News just came down from Scott Woodward, the athletic director at the University of Washington, that UW will be participating in the Jimmy V. Classic that is taking place in New York at the Madison Square Garden on December 6th and they will be playing Marquette. However, he also scheduled another game at MSG on December 10th against Duke.
Originally, the news about Marquette broke about a week ago when a Marquette player tweeted to a UW player that they were going to be playing each other.
But today, even bigger news came out that UW would face Duke and that the game will be aired on CBS and the Marquette game would be on ESPN.
Softy Mahler from KJR and Gregg Bell from gohuskies.com were the first to tweet this news.
