According to the Cyclones athletic website press release, Iowa State and Drake will be the first game that tips off in the doubleheader. It will tipoff at 4:00 PM Central time.
"Drake and Iowa State will matchup in the first game of the doubleheader beginning at 4 p.m. UNI and Iowa will play the second game beginning at 6:30 p.m. Television information for both games will be announced at a later date."
The most interesting thing to note of this announcement is that the TV network has yet to be set. Mediacom generally shows the games, but last season, the Big Ten Network showed Iowa’s game against UNI. There’s a chance that could happen again, or it’s possible that one of the ESPN networks could pick one or both of the games up.
For those that don’t give a crap about the TV assignments because they are going to the game(s), here’s ticket information from the press release:
"Tickets for Hy-Vee Big Four Classic range in price from $25-70. Each institution will have an equal number of game tickets to distribute. Tickets will be good for admission to both games of the doubleheader and will be made available first to each institution’s basketball season ticket holders. Tickets not sold by the institutions will be placed on sale for the general public through the Wells Fargo Arena box office at a date to be announced."
