Maui Invitational: Gonzaga, Colorado, Cincinnati, Maryland, Wisconsin, Chaminade, Arizona, Vanderbilt.
don't know much about who's coming back for any of these squads (minus U of A and the Grievous kid for the Terps) but looks pretty stout on paper. I'd guess we get 1-2 games against very good competition and possibly (worst case scenario) a W against Chaminade. With a W against any of the non-Chaminade teams that would mean likely 3 games against better than mid-level "BCS" conference type teams. that would equal how many previous non-con schedules in previous seasons? 4, 5, ? More? In 3 days.
much better experience for our guys than previous OOC's....dating back to forever (though, mid-career Ricardo scheduled a few a decent one-offs....the horrible, punch a hole in the dash board L to UGA in Boulder comes to mind).

That's a murderers' row of (not elite but) above average programs the last decade-plus. Should give CU some good national TV exposure, especially were they to steal one against a Gonzaga or Wisconsin squad.
Negative-minded corollary: Or drop one to Chaminade.

That's nice to see us in one of the top early-season tournaments like this one with, along with some high-profile teams.
Here's a link on the UVA win.
