76 Classic Brackets finalized: Pilots vs. UCLA

Post by PilotNut on Tue Jul 14, 2009 5:16 pm

From Gary Parrish Blog:

CLEVELAND -- Organizers of the 76 Classic have informed participating schools of the bracket for their event.

The bracket, according to a source, is as follows:

Texas A&M vs. Clemson
West Virginia vs. Long Beach State
UCLA vs. Portland
Butler vs. Minnesota
The Texas A&M-Clemson winner will play the West Virginia-LBSU winner in one semifinal.

The UCLA-Portland winner will play the Butler-Minnesota winner in the other semifinal.

The winners of those games will meet in the championship game.

The dates of the event are Nov. 26, 27 and 29.

Organizers of the 76 Classic are expected to formally announce the bracket in the near future. Worth noting is that half of the participating schools -- No. 10 West Virginia, No. 11 Butler, No. 14 Clemson and No. 16 Minnesota -- are ranked in the CBSSports.com preseason Top 25 (and one) .


A win over UCLA would be a great Thanksgiving treat, dont you think?! Very Happy What a strong looking field.

GO PILOTS!

BEAT THE BRUINS!

Wow... and the gauntlet has been thrown down. So that means we're guaranteed a game against UCLA and one against either Butler or Minnesota. Plus one more from the field of A&M, Clemson, West Virginia, and Long Beach State.

Just having a game against UCLA on the schedule is awesome, but could you imagine... oh my gosh... they lost Collisen, Shipp, Holiday, and Aboya - four of their top five scorers... ha! It's July, so we can always dream right? Smile

Who woulda thought UCLA would actually be a good draw...

I'm sure Howland will have a pretty strong squad no matter what players he has...

Do they have any first team All-America prospects? if so Travis Andrews should stop by practice and teach someone how to throw a good 'bow!

Great opportunity for the Pilots.

Leave no doubt, this will be a home game for UCLA and they will sell out the place - smart move by the promoters of the tournament to get the Bruins to commit to make it profitable in its 3rd year of existence. Good line up, too.

The non-UCLA games will be very empty. I would strongly encourage Pilot fans to make the trip - 50 to 100 vocal fans will be a factor.
