CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami men’s basketball team will face Stanford in the opening round of the AdvoCare Invitational, ESPN Events announced Thursday. The Canes will then take on either Indiana State or Iowa State in the second round of the 11th annual event, played Nov. 24, 25 & 27 at HP Field House at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Fla.

Miami and Stanford last met in the championship game of the 2015 NIT, when the Canes lost 66-64 in overtime at Madison Square Garden. The Canes are 1-2 all-time against the Cardinal, dating back to the 1986 season. UM has never faced Iowa State, and is 0-1 against Indiana State, with an overtime loss in the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu in 2012.

The AdvoCare Invitational features three teams that advanced to the Sweet 16 in last year’s NCAA Tournament – Gonzaga, Iowa State and Miami – as well as BIG EAST champion Seton Hall. Other participants include Florida, which made the third round of the NIT last season, Indiana State, Quinnipiac and Stanford.

The bracket-format tournament features 12 games over three days. Teams will compete once per day, advancing with a victory. The two teams that remain undefeated will face off in the championship game on Sun., Nov. 27, at 1:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Additional information, including travel packages, can be found on the AdvoCare Invitational web site.
