Gonzaga will face Tennessee this Decemeber in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden

SPOKANE, Wash. – The last time Gonzaga and Tennessee squared off, it was in a neutral arena in 2018, when current NBA rookeis Rui Hachimura and Brandon Clarke were still Bulldogs.

The Vols took down the Zags 76-73 in Decemeber that year behind a three-point attack from Tennessee’s Admiral Schofield, who nailed three in the final stretch to edge the Zags.

They’ll run into each other again in 2020, at the Jimmy V Classic in Madison Square Garden according to college and NBA basketball analyst Jeff Goodman.

Gonzaga is 4-2 all-time against Tennessee. This matchup adds to a tough December in 2020, as the Zags are already set to face Arizona, Washington and Texas Tech.

The Baylor Bears, who hung around in the top-five rankings for college basketball most of this season, will also be at the Jimmy V Classic, and face off against Rutgers.
