PK80 - Phil Knight Invitational - Thanksgiving 2017

Post by DoubleDipper on Wed Sep 21, 2016 2:16 pm

We've known for quite some time that the PK80 - Phil Knight Invitational would include Arkansas, Butler, Connecticut, Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Gonzaga, Michigan State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Portland, Portland State, Stanford and Texas, but until now, I don't think we've actually known the firm dates and venue for PK80 in 2017:

The 16 team event (actually two 8 team events run simultaneously) will take place on Thanksgiving Day 11/23, Friday 11/24, and Sunday 11/26 2017

Although the brackets have not yet been announced, the two 8 team events will run simultaneously in the Rose Quarter's Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum....all the games will be broadcast on the ESPN networks.

From Coach Terry Porter, “We are very excited to welcome the elite of college basketball to the city of Portland for this landmark event. To be asked to participate in the greatest regular season college basketball tournament of all time is a special honor for the University of Portland. Phil Knight and Nike have contributed so much to the growth of college basketball and impacted so many individual student-athletes in a positive manner. We are privileged to be able to say thank you to Phil by helping to host and showcase this event, as well as our great city, to a national audience via ESPN next year.”
