    Honest question: How does this even still exist? Isnt the venue a large ballroom with the courts having very awkward depth perception on the baskets and weird HVAC?

    I do like that lineup though.

    Pretty sure they write a bigger check to participating schools than any other preseason tournament, or least they did, so that helps.

    Fair enough - money talks. Thanks

    It also is fairly well run in terms of logistics, etc. Everything is all in one building, teams can stay where they play. The travel isn’t nearly as intense as Hawaii. It just kind of makes sense.

    Maui is by far the best preseason tourney that I’ve ever covered though if you had to go to just one.
