Michigan basketball officially has its first opponent of the 2021 Roman Main Event tournament in Las Vegas.

The Wolverines will play UNLV on Nov. 19 before facing either the winner or loser between Arizona and Wichita State on Nov. 21, according to CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein.

The early season tournament will be played at T-Mobile Arena, home of the NHL's Vegas Golden Knights.

The report is the latest point of clarity regarding Michigan's 2021-22 nonconference schedule.

The Wolverines are scheduled to host Seton Hall on Nov. 16 as part of the Gavitt Games, and will travel to Chapel Hill to play at North Carolina on Dec. 1 as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Additionally, U-M will host Kentucky on Dec. 4 as part of a three-game series that features home-and-home matchups (in 2021-22 and 2023-24) and a game in London during the 2022-23 season originally supposed to take place during the 2020-21 season.

The Wolverines are supposed to play at UCF in the final leg of a home-and-home series that began with a game in Ann Arbor on Dec. 6, 2020.
