I'm going to post these roughly chronologically, starting with the Puerto Rico Tip-Off before Thanksgiving and ending with the Global Basketball Classic during Christmas week.
However, I'm starting this series by attempting to look at all of the fields that have not released brackets yet, so tournaments that have already put theirs out there, like the Paradise Jam, Hall of Fame Tip-Off, and that Global event in Las Vegas, won't get a primer until August. Therefore, if an event scheduled up until the original date of the Diamond Head Classic post, August 4th, releases a bracket before that date, it will get kicked down to the later group and I'll adjust the overall schedule Got it? Good.
Links here will go live after the post is published. I'm also placing links to these primers under the event names on the Early Season Events page.
