The other teams making up half the field are UAB and Wyoming. All of the teams announced thus far made last season’s NCAA Tournament, and each won 20 games as well. The other half of the field will be released at a later date.

These tournaments to exotic locations are always a fun time for sun, sand and hoops. The Cayman Islands Classic will be played in November of 2017.
