Pretty good field. It will take place in 2016 during the Thurday (Nov. 24), Friday (Nov. 25), and Sunday (Nov. 27) of Thanksgiving weekend

Gonzaga has an undefeated 6-0 record in the event, winning the tournaments in 2008 and 2012, when it was known as the Old Spice Classic. In 2013, the event was renamed the Orlando Classic, and now it has AdvoCare as its sponsor beginning in 2015: http://espnmediazone.com/us/press-releases/2015/06/advocare-named-title-sponsor-of-former-orlando-classic-at-walt-disney-world-resort/

The Zags will likely host a matchup at the Kennel prior to flying out for the tournament.

Great addition to the 2016-17 schedule which already has U-Dub (http://www.gozags.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/080414aaa.html), likely Tennessee in Nashville (http://tennessee.247sports.com/Article/Tennessee-Vols-finalizing-plans-to-play-Gonzaga-Bulldogs-37244988), and the annual Battle in Seattle.

The Zags are working to extend the series with Arizona and UCLA (https://twitter.com/JeffEisenberg/status/659844819133399040), but Zona may have already "replaced" us with New Mexico (https://twitter.com/suntimesphx/status/597987818267217920)...

Lets see, Iowa will lose their one and done this year, Florida is a crap shoot, Stanford could have a team by then... still better competition and assuming a much better gym than the Great Alaska Shootout usually produces :)

Stanford will still have Reid Travis assuming he doesn't go pro I believe
