According to college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, the Oregon men’s basketball team will join Alabama and Ohio State to play in next year’s Emerald Coast Classic.
The tournament is still looking for a fourth team to complete the field for 2023.
As for this year’s field, TCU, Iowa, Clemson, and Cal will battle it out Nov. 25 and 26 at Raider Arena on the campus of Northwest Florida State College.
But by the time 2023 rolls around, Oregon might be ready to become conference members alongside the Buckeyes or the Crimson Tide with all of the conference realignment talk going on.
2023 will be the last season for the Pac-12 in its current form as UCLA and USC are scheduled to move on to the Big 10 beginning in 2024. Oregon, and the rest of the conference, are currently looking at their options as to where to land in 2024 and beyond.
