The EA Sports Maui Invitational is usually one of the best three preseason college basketball tournaments each and every year. This year's field is full of great teams such as Arizona, San Diego State, BYU, Purdue, Pittsburgh, Missouri, Kansas State and as always the host Chaminade.
This tournament is a great test for all of these but the biggest game of the tournament is San Diego State vs. BYU, and that is not because of the historical purposes to the Mountain West. The loser of this game is all but assured of playing Division II Chaminade, but a win gets a much better opponent.
Here is the complete schedule for this week (all times Eastern). Also, all games can be seen via WatchESPN.
