TORONTO — An NCAA men's basketball tripleheader will be played in Toronto in November.

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced Tuesday that the inaugural James Naismith Classic will be held on Nov. 16 at Scotiabank Arena.

Tennessee will face Washington, Buffalo will battle Harvard and St. Bonaventure will meet Rutgers.

Tennessee, Washington and Buffalo all qualified for the NCAA tournament this year.
