The Big Ten announced its conference matchups for both the men’s and women’s 2011-12 basketball seasons on Thursday.

The Iowa men will play an 18-game conference schedule and face Ohio State, Michigan, Illinois, and Michigan State once each during the season. The Hawkeyes will host the Buckeyes and Wolverines and travel to play the Illini and Spartans. All four teams played in the 2011 NCAA Tournament.

The Black and Gold will face the other seven league teams twice, both at home and on the road, and will play 13 nonconference games for a 31-game regular season.

Iowa’s women will play 16 conference games, with five two-game series and six single games.

Bluder’s team will host Illinois, Michigan State, and Minnesota and will travel to Indiana, Ohio State, and Penn State. The other five league opponents will both host Iowa and visit Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Game dates, times, and broadcast information will be announced at a later date, according to a release. The Iowa women’s team will also reveal its nonconference schedule later in the summer.
