AMES – The Iowa State men’s basketball team will host Marquette in the 2024 Big 12/BIG EAST Battle on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at Hilton Coliseum.

Iowa State is 4-0 in the BIG EAST/Big 12 Battle, beating DePaul (99-80) last season, St. John’s (71-60) in 2022, Creighton (64-58) in 2021 and No. 16 Seton Hall (76-66) in 2019 at Hilton Coliseum. The 2020 meeting with DePaul was canceled due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols just hours before tipoff.

The Cyclones and Golden Eagles will be meeting for the ninth time. Iowa State won the last meeting, 77-69, in Hilton Coliseum March 25, 2004. The victory sent the Cyclones to the NIT Final Four. Marquette leads the all-time series 5-3, while Iowa State holds a 3-2 advantage in Ames. The Golden Eagles went 27-10 last season, advancing to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16. Both the Cyclones and Golden Eagles finished the year in the AP Top 25, with ISU at No. 8 and Marquette at No. 11.

With each conference adding member schools since the start of the original agreement, the Battle increased from 10 to 11 matchups last season and will continue with 11 for this year.

The Battle matchups are jointly determined by the two conferences, with the home team choosing the venue of its game. Broadcast arrangements for the contests will be determined by the national television rights holder of the home team, which is ESPN for the Big 12 and FOX Sports for the BIG EAST.

Game times and television networks will be announced when available.
