    Anyone hearing anything about the men playing in an early season tournament? It seems some are starting to fill up. Right now Maui, Puerto Rico and the battle 4 Atlantis are full (as well as others could be). Would love a warm weather trip. Cancun perhaps?

    Wish we'd get ourselves in one. Facing good competition early on a neutral court can be so valuable. I know we made up for it this year with Baylor and Okie Lite on neutral courts, but there's something great about an 8 team tournament. Would love to return to Maui in coming years now that we're solid or do the Preseason NIT. Charleston was a great experience, I'd enjoy a return there. Maybe we can do Cancun or the Paradise Jam. Anything, Corpus Christi for all I care.

    I was at something last year at it sounded like the Diamond Head Classic was on their radar.

    I thought Diamond Head was in 2015.

    Old spice would be nice, even if it would hang an early L on the team. That's how everyone will be playing in march, so they'll need to be ready.

    I was told a few years ago that we were scheduled for the Diamonhead Classic. I've been planning on attending ever since. A change now would be... disheartening.

    If it is there, I owe the wife a trip to the Islands anyway. Hope this is true.
