NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame men's basketball team will face Ohio State in the 2013 Chevrolet Gotham City Classic on December 21, 2013. The second annual game will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York, N.Y. The Gazelle Group, a sports marketing firm in Princeton, N.J., once again will produce the event.

Tickets for the Showcase Game of the Gotham City Classic are now available and can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at 866-448-7849 or by visiting Ticketmaster.com.

Next year matchup between the two Midwest schools will be just the 12th meeting ever between the Irish and the Buckeyes. Notre Dame last squared off against the Buckeyes on Dec. 6, 2008 inside the Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis, Ind.) with Ohio State slipping by the Irish 67-62.

Prior to that contest, Notre Dame and Ohio had not played since Nov. 16, 2009 in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament with the Irish handing the Buckeyes a 59-57 setback in Columbus, Ohio.

Throughout the 12 games of the series neither team has won by more than 12 points dating back to their first matchup on Feb. 17, 1912 as the Irish earned a 24-23 victory.

In the span of the series both squads have averaged for a 5.16-point winning margin, displaying tight knit battles in nearly every game. The pair holds an even 3-3 series at Columbus, Ohio and a 2-3 series in Notre Dame, Ind.

The Temple Owls were the inaugural winners of the Gotham Classic in December 2012 as the Owls upset Syracuse 83-79, ranked third at the time of the game.

The finalized field and schedule for the Gotham City Classic will be announced at a later date.
