New college hoops doubleheader set for Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS -- A new men's college basketball doubleheader will feature Colorado, Marquette, New Mexico and Oklahoma State playing in Las Vegas on Dec. 21.
The MGM Grand Showcase will be played at the hotel of the same name, with Marquette vs. New Mexico and Oklahoma State vs. Colorado. The games, to be televised on ESPNU and ESPN2, will partly benefit the Coaches vs. Cancer charity.
The hotel has a three-year deal to host games. It is already home to the Pac-12 Conference men's tournament. The doubleheader will be played in the 16,800-seat Grand Garden arena.
