Good news about the Cancun/Bahamas idea. There are so many schools, inc. mid-majors, who participate in these events, that we will surely be able to get in good venues, year-over-year, if we WANT to. Maybe the past approach was about cost, preplanning, networking, etc. There are several reasons to get in these tournaments, but from where I see it, the best reason is that you usually get 3 good tests of what you have, early in the season, on a neutral court. I like the Ford idea, but maybe this could be a gathering closer to Christmas, and maybe the same 4 teams nearly every year: Belmont, Murray/WKU, NKU/Marshall, Miamo-O/Ball St.. A good way to keep good teams on the schedule, a drivable venue for all, casino town with hospitality, etc.

The Aces 2019-2020 non-con schedule is starting to take shape. Impressive. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but, I know Coach has wanted to schedule Kentucky. Could they be on the 2019-2020 schedule?

Go Aces!
Let's get this McCarty Party started.

Thanks for posting the link Acefan.


From recruiting and scheduling, I'm excited with the direction of the program.

I believe you will discover that the 2019 tourney in the Bahamas is the Island of Bahamas Showcase and is not at the Atlantis. http://thebahamasshowcase.com

Not exactly a plethora of top P5 teams. but it should be a nice venue to get ready for the MVC. Maybe by next year they can up the competition somewhat.

With the TV and $$ emphasis, the Atlantis tourney is in the same league as Maui. We'll be fine in the Bahamas Showcase. It'll give us a great early test, and we should be competitive with other teams.....and it's still a great trip for fans who might want to follow the team to an interesting resort.
