Florida State And Notre Dame Headline 2012 Coaches Vs. Cancer Classic

A little less than a week ago, I mentioned that the host schools for the 2012 Coaches vs. Cancer Classic, the first to be played at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, would be announced on St. Patrick's Day.

Well, you don't have to wait that long, as media reports, like this one by Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune, feature the list of four host schools. Florida State (ACC) and Notre Dame (Big East), who met in an NCAA Third Round game in Chicago last March are the two major conference programs invited, while BYU (WCC) is the third 2012 NCAA team that will participate. The fourth host is St. Joseph's (A-10), an NIT team this time around, which happens to be coached by the chairman of the Coaches vs. Cancer National Council, Phil Martelli.

Despite the shift from Manhattan to Brooklyn, the event will still serve as one of the first on the 2012-13 calendar. The semifinals and finals are set for November 16th and 17th, with each host school playing two home games before the showcase event.
