— Campbell basketball will participate in the Buckeye Classic exempt event hosted by Ohio State and James Madison this season season. 

The Camels will host Colgate on Sat., Nov. 22, marking the first time a Patriot League member has played at Gore Arena, which opened in 2008. The Camels will travel to Ohio State on Wed., Nov. 26 as well as to Sacred Heart (Nov. 30) and James Madison (Dec. 2).

“The Buckeye Classic is a great opportunity for us to play high-level competition, including one of the best teams in the country in Ohio State,” said head coach Kevin McGeehan, who is entering his second year in charge of the Fighting Camels. “Coach Thad Matta has done an amazing job of developing the Buckeyes into a perennial top-10 program. We are honored to go there and compete. Coupled with the opportunity to play James Madison, a 2013 NCAA tournament team, Sacred Heart and the chance to host a very good Colgate program, we will have a very good early read on where we are as a program.”

James Madison is the lone school in the Buckeye Classic field that Campbell has faced previously, but the Camels and Dukes have not squared off since the 1983-84 campaign.

The Buckeye Classic marks the fourth-straight year that the Camels have participated in an exempt event. Over the previous three seasons, Campbell has won at Auburn (61-54 on Nov. 20, 2010) and Iowa (77-61 on Nov. 23, 2011) while also traveling to No. 25 Creighton (Nov. 25, 2011) and No. 20 Cincinnati (Nov. 20, 2013).
