    Would that be two games or just 1 game?

    One game - they already have a multi-game tournament scheduled for the '21-'22 season I believe.

    This is right. Unless something is different in 2021, it'll be 4 teams, two semi-final games, and then the consolation and championship game the following day.

    So Louisville v PC, Zags vs Potsdam State for a Ville-Zags final? PC draws well at MSG so if they upset Mack the Monkey it’s not a disaster.

    I think that it's great that the possible #1 preseason team will be upstaged by Louisville, just for the east coast folks.
    It's not funny.

    It looks to me like the inaccurate take of a Louisville-centric writer for ESPN....

    It's usually the Thurs/Fri of the week before Thanksgiving so would think Nov 18/19, 2021.
