Tickets on Sale Saturday, July 16
Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas will host Creighton University, Brigham Young University, Arizona State University, Southern Utah University, and California State University Fullerton in the Jack Jones Hoopfest on December 10 and 12.
The Creighton Bluejays, led by head coach Greg McDermott, enter the season off of a third straight NCAA Tournament appearance. With the addition of Baylor Schierman and returners Ryan Nembhard and Ryan Kalkbrenner, the Blue Jays are widely expected to be a preseason Top 10 team.
The BYU Cougars narrowly missed the NCAA Tournament last season but have thrived in the transfer portal, most recently adding guard Rudi Williams and Arkansas transfer Jaxson Robinson.
The Arizona State Sun Devils enter the season with a re-tooled roster that includes the Cambridge brothers as well as Michigan transfer Frankie Collins.
Southern Utah won the Big Sky two years ago and finished second in the regular season last year. Cal-State Fullerton made an NCAA Tournament appearance after winning the Big West Conference tournament.
