Gonzaga and UCLA will reprise their epic 2021 NCAA Tournament contest when they meet in November at the Empire Classic in Las Vegas.

The game is scheduled for Nov. 23 at T-Mobile Arena.

Gonzaga beat the Bruins 93-90 on a half-court heave from Jalen Suggs in overtime in the Final Four on April 3. Suggs entered the draft and will not be around for the rematch. However, Gonzaga will feature freshman Chet Holmgren, rated the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2021.

The teams will open the Empire Classic with games on Nov. 22. The Bruins face Bellarmine while the Zags take on Central Michigan.

In addition to UCLA, Gonzaga is also scheduled to play Texas, Duke, Alabama, Texas Tech and Washington as part of its non-conference schedule.
