Baylor To Face Boston College in Charleston Classic

CHARLESTON, S.C. (July 26, 2012) -- The bracket for the 2012 Charleston Classic was released on Thursday, revealing that Baylor will face Boston College in the tournament’s opening round on Nov. 15 at TD Arena.

Baylor’s game against BC is slated for 2 p.m. CT and will be televised live on ESPNU. The Bears will face either Colorado or Dayton on Nov. 16 at either 11:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m., and that game will also be shown on ESPNU.

Baylor will play its third game in the tournament on Nov. 18 against one of four teams from the other side of the bracket: St. John’s, College of Charleston, Murray State and Auburn. Additionally, Baylor will host College of Charleston in Waco on Nov. 24 in a non-bracketed game.

If Baylor faces Colorado in its second game, the game would be a rematch of the 2012 NCAA Championship third round game that the Bears won 80-63 to advance to the Sweet 16. Baylor has never faced Dayton, Boston College or College of Charleston.

The Charleston Classic presented by Foster Grant features 12 games over three days in an eight-team tournament. Each team will play in one game per day, advancing through a bracket-tournament format.
