    Las Vegas Invitational

    @ESPNAndyKatz
    Las Vegas Invitational announces its four teams: Creighton, Arkansas, Arizona State and Wisconsin will play Nov. 23-24 at Orleans Arena.

    Isn't this the one we were supposed to play in? Or are there two?

    The Camels were actually pretty athletic, but a Big 10 school should not be losing to them.

    Re: Las Vegas Invitational

    gonna be a tough competition. Oregon is on the rise and UNLV got a really good recruiting class (incuding Bennett). Cincinnati will be good for awhile with Cronin as the coach and their leading scorer Kilpatrick is back.

    If we win this tournament, i'll like our chances to be a contender for the big 12.

    Re: Las Vegas Invitational

    I am disappoint if we don't draw Camel in that tournament.

    I hear they're a good road team, SOOOO lucky we get them on a neutral court instead of at Hilton where I'm sure they'd blow us out.

    IIRC, Iowa didn't just lose to Campbell, they got their lunches handed to them.

    Would be a huge boost to NCAA tournament chances if they can win this.

    I assume this is full-bracket setup (8 teams, 3 games each)?

    I'm curious about first-round matchups. I'm sure UNLV, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Oregon would each be paired w JS, NAU, Campbell and NCA&T in round 1.

    i think I read somewhere that we play Cincinnati, my question is why are we playing in a tournament on another teams home court?
