Greg McDermott said Thursday that Creighton has agreed to play in the 2014 Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic in Connecticut.

Florida State, Notre Dame and Massachusetts will be the other teams in the tournament, McDermott said.

The tournament will be played at the 10,000-seat Mohegan Sun Arena at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn. The tournament is associated with the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and is sponsored by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

This year’s tournament will be played Saturday and Sunday and will feature competition in two, four-team brackets. Ohio State, Washington, Rhode Island and Seton Hall are in one bracket, with Loyola-Maryland, Norfolk State, Missouri-Kansas City and Albany in the other.

Creighton is participating in the Las Vegas Invitational this season, and is scheduled to play in the Anaheim Classic in Anaheim, Calif.
