Villanova’s victory Monday over Michigan marked the conclusion of the 2017-2018 college basketball season, but Southern Nevada hoops fans already have something to look forward to with the stellar field now announced for the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational, scheduled for November 22-23, 2018, at Orleans Arena.
The University of North Carolina will join Michigan State, Texas and UCLA for what has to be one of the best tournament fields ever. The Tar Heels won the event in 2007-08 and finished second in 2011-12. UCLA will be making its second appearance in the tournament, while the Spartans and Longhorns are playing in the Las Vegas Invitational for the first time.
FOX Broadcast network’s FS1 will present coverage of the two games on Nov. 22 and the championship and consolation games on Nov. 23. The tournament match-ups are still pending.
Tickets are available at the Orleans Arena box office at www.orleansarena.com.
