Looks like the field has been set for the Las Vegas Classic that the Jays are taking part in this year. What a disappointing field. Definitely not the North Carolina, Louisville, BYU teams in a similar Vegas tourney we backed out of last year. I’m hoping with the remaining games to fill (maybe 1) that there might be a rabbit pulled out of the hat, but the expectations are low at this point.
The eight-team field for the seventh annual Findlay Toyota Las Vegas Classic is set. The teams are Creighton, Depaul, Fresno State, Liberty, Northern Colorado, Saint Louis, South Carolina Upstate and Southern in the event.
Each team will play four games total, with the first two coming at campus sites and the final two coming December 22 and 23 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
I’m betting Creighton gets Northern Colorado and Liberty for the first 2 games. Just a guess.
Tickets for the event go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 7. For more information, call 702-284-7777 or visit http://www.orleansarena.com.
