I've made some further updates to the Early Season Tournaments page. I added the field to the Cancun Challenge, where eight teams, led by Kentucky, Stanford, Virginia, and Cleveland State, will play in a really big hotel ballroom in front of fans who paid an exorbitant amount for a vacation package. Lucky Wildcat fans may just be able to get a good glimpse of Ashley Judd while watching John Wall and Patrick Patterson (but not Jodie Meeks) lead John Calipari's drive for a early-season tourney crown.
Thanks, but I'll stick to my original California trip, even if I won't get to see Patty Mills play in a Saint Mary's uniform while I'm out there.
I also added information about the Philly Hoop Group Classic played over Thanksgiving weekend at the Palestra, which features at least one Big Five team (Temple this year) and seven others, with a heavy Northeast and Mid-Atlantic focus. (Delaware, Virginia Tech, Siena, and St. John's are in this year's field.)
I'll be lying low for the next week, as my mom and brother will be visiting DC starting Friday, and I have a lot to do around here before showing them around for four days (and a bobblehead giveaway in Baltimore on Wednesday night.) Expect a post-draft/recruiting bracket early next week. It will give you something to laugh at later in the year.
