Gonzaga to Participate in 2017 Mega-Tournament in Portland.


Another awesome job by Michigan State's AD thinking outside the box and putting together something REAL special in honor of Nike's founder Phil Knight. Save the date for November 2017, when sixteen of college basketball's most storied programs will meet in Portland for an early season tournament. In order to circumvent the NCAA's rule prohibiting teams from the same conference playing before the regular conference season start, the tournament will be setup as two distinct eight-team tournaments featuring:

ACC: Duke & North Carolina

Big-10: Michigan State & Ohio State

Big-12: Oklahoma & Texas

Big East: Connecticut & Georgetown

SEC: Kentucky & Florida

WCC: Gonzaga & Portland

A10: Butler & Xavier

Pac-12: Oregon & Stanford

All that's left to ask: are you as excited about this as I am??
