(EUGENE, Ore. ) - Oregon’s 2014-15 men’s basketball schedule is developing a distinct Upper Midwest flavor with the announcement Wednesday that the Ducks will play Michigan and Toledo in the Legends Classic.

The Ducks will host Toledo on Nov. 21 and will play Michigan Nov. 24 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., in a semifinal game that will be broadcast on ESPN3.

Oregon will then face either Villanova or Virginia Commonwealth on the final day of the tournament, Nov. 25.

The Wolverines posted a 28-9 record in 2013-14 and won the program's first outright Big Ten regular season title in 28 years while advancing to NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight for the second straight season.

Toledo won a share of the MAC regular-season championship for the first time since 2007 in recording a school-record 27 wins last season, just three years after posting a 4-28 mark. The Rockets, a 2014 NIT team, return eight letterwinners, and four starters for this season.

Those games are in addition to Oregon’s previously announced matchups versus Upper Midwest region opponents Detroit on Nov. 17 in the Legends Classic opener at Matthew Knight Arena and the Dec. 13 contest against Illinois at the United Center in Chicago.

The Ducks will also host Mississippi during the non-conference season.

Season tickets for the 2014-15 season are currently available online at www.goducks.com/mbbtix.

In addition to the Legends Classic, the home slate includes games against Arizona, UCLA, Washington, Oregon State and Colorado, among others, at Matthew Knight Arena.
