The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team will face Manhattan in the first round of the Old Spice Classic in Orlando on Nov. 25, sources say.

Manhattan was 11-20 last year and has six incoming freshmen, including four from New York City.

The winner of that game will take on the winner of the Boston College/Texas A&M first-round game.

BC is coached by Steve Donahue, who was the coach of the Cornell team that was the darling of the 2010 NCAA tournament and defeated the Badgers 87-69 in a second-round game in Jacksonville. BC was 15-16 last year.

Texas A&M was 24-10 last year and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Other schools in the 2010 Old Spice Classic are California, Georgia, Notre Dame and Temple.
