Another part of the Iowa men’s basketball schedule was revealed Monday, when the Athletics Department announced that the Hawkeyes will face Xavier in the first round of the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas.

The game will tip off at 6 p.m. CST on the NBC Sports Network on Thanksgiving Day. Depending on the outcome of their matchup, the Hawkeyes will then face either UTEP or Tennessee.

Many anticipate that, should the Hawkeyes make it to the tournaments finals, they will face Kansas. The Jayhawks, along with Wake Forest, Villanova and USC, round out the pool of tournament participants.

The tournament will take place at the Imperial Arena, a ballroom at the Atlantis Resort that will be converted into a basketball arena that can seat 3,900 fans.

As was announced earlier this summer, Iowa will play in the Battle 4 Atlantis, which replaces the Great Alaskan Shootout on the team’s schedule. The Hawkeyes will head into the upcoming campaign after a strong 2012-13 season, in which the team won 25 games and made it to the NIT finals in Madison Square Garden, where they fell to Baylor.
