The 2020 Armed Forces Classic will be played at the Marine Corps Base in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, on Friday Nov. 13.
Oklahoma State finished the 2019-20 regular season with a 18-14 record and were 7-11 in Big 12 play.
Head coach Mike Boynton lost three of his top four scorers to graduation, but they’ll bring in star freshman, Cade Cunningham, the top ranked recruit from the 2020 class.
The Armed Forces Classic is the second non-conference event that the Cards are set to participate in. The program made it official last month by announcing that they’ll participate in the MGM Resorts Main Event in Las Vegas with Arkansas, Colorado and San Francisco.
This will be Louisville’s second appearance in the Armed Forces Classic. The Cards defeated Minnesota 81-66 in 2014 at the Air Force Base in Borinquen, Puerto Rico.<
