HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. — The 2018-19 season is just around the corner, and the anticipation continues to build with each passing day.

Teams are finalizing their non-conference slates for the upcoming season, and plenty of teams across the country are taking part in multi-team events. These events provide match-ups that fans may not see on a regular basis, and it helps to strengthen the level of competition that teams face before conference play gets rolling.

On Wednesday, the Northern Kentucky Norse took to social media to announce that they were hosting a multi-team event on their home court in Highland Heights. All four teams in the event, including the Norse, have played in the NCAA Tournament in recent years.

Joining Northern Kentucky inside the BB&T Arena for the three-day event will be the UNC Asheville Bulldogs, Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, and the Manhattan Jaspers. The event will take place from November 16-18, 2018. Continue reading Northern Kentucky Set to Host a Multi-Team Event in November

EVANSVILLE, In. — The 2018-19 season is still close to six months away, but with each passing day, college basketball gets a little bit closer.

On Wednesday, the excitement continued to build for the Evansville Purple Aces, as they released their non-conference schedule for the upcoming season. The North Carolina Tar Heels were the first team to release their full non-conference slate back in mid-April.

Head coach Walter McCarty has put together a challenging slate that will undoubtedly test the Purple Aces, considering they will be without their top three scorers from a season ago. Evansville will play six games away from home, while hosting seven non-conference games before the 2018 calendar year comes to a close.

2017-18 MTE and Neutral Site Showcase Preview Series: Cancun Challenge, Riviera Bracket

Otis Livingston II and the George Mason Patriots will look to turn some heads at the 2017 Cancun Challenge.

CALGARY, Alta. — The 2017-18 season is just around the corner, and while there’s a debate on Twitter as to when the season actually starts, it can’t get here soon enough.

Schedules are being released with each passing weekday, and many of them feature early-season tournaments and multi-team events all throughout non-conference play. According to Chris Dobbertean and Blogging the Bracket, there are over 30 multi-team tournaments, and another handful of neutral site showcases and non-exempt events.

So, with the season coming up, we thought we would go through and preview all of the early-season tournaments, the non-exempt tournaments, and a wide array of the neutral site showcase events. In total, we will preview 75 different events over the course of the next 75 days, culminating on opening day.

We selected the events at random, and have broken some up into two pieces, like the Phil Knight Invitational, since there are two separate brackets.

Today, we take a look at the Riviera Bracket of the 2017 Cancun Challenge. Continue reading 2017-18 MTE and Neutral Site Showcase Preview Series: Cancun Challenge, Riviera Bracket
