Sounds like an ESPN game.

Re: 2017-18 America East OOC Schedules

Maine is in the Springfield Bracket of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off in Uncasville w/Sacred Heart, St. Peters and South Alabama....hey, we'll take what we can get.

This is the first pre-season tourney for Maine in a LONG TIME so it's exciting in that regard.

I'm sure the broadcasting rights weren't cheap either for ESPN. There will most likely be 8-10 Top 25 teams involved, including both teams from the National Championship game this past year.

Here's the website for the PK80, which will be 2 8-team tournaments played on the 23rd, 24th and 26th: http://pkinvitational.com/

BTW, they are doing a mini version for the women:

Nov 25th
Oklahoma @ Oregon
Mich State vs UConn

The men will be playing in Portland while the women's games will be in Eugene.

The Vermont/Richmond game, aka the "John Becker First round Interview game". Great audition game/opportunity for him.

@ken tucky would obviously be awesome.

Great for Portland and Portland State to be included in this event- for current players and recruiting.

That's an awesome overall mid-major field. Wow- great tournament for UVM to participate in; and a trip to the Bahamas as well.

I guess that we know what some of UNC and Duke's demands were.

Well, UNC & Duke couldn't be put in the same bracket anyway. Also, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Portland and Portland State asked for or wanted those games. For a mid-major to get a "neutral" site game with those guys is awesome.

I was thinking the same thing...that is a win-win all the way around.

Great tournament for all. Gives UVM the chance to play teams from conferences that will help. MVC, Big Sky (Weber has pulled off a couple of major upsets in the NCAA's).

This is going to be quite an OOC schedule.
