Thanks for the info. When I heard it was Thanksgiving weekend my first thought was the battle for Atlantis.It will still be a good tourney for us.

It looks like Houston Baptist and Eastern Michigan are waiver games and won't be participating in Maui on the mainland with us.

Yes, I don't know how this will work, but it's possible that we'll have to scramble now to pick up a couple of decent opponents for us and Chaminade. No way to tell, but we could end up with uncommitted teams like Lipscomb or UT-Martin. Maybe a Belmont, Tenn. St. Simply to draw fans, I'd like to see KWC and any of the above. UE could play Chaminade, KWC vs. The other mid-major, then the D2s and D1s play the second night. We know Chaminade will be one team, so we'll have another D2 game regardless, but the second game we play should be a decent"mid-major.

We can't play any more non-D1 schools. There is a limit of two non-D1 schools, and we apparently have Chaminade and Albion already.

The 4 team may be preset, rather than win/advance. I.e. UE vs. Mid-major and Chaminade vs. Quality D2 1st nite, then UE vs. Chaminade and other mid-major vs. Quality D-2 2nd night. I get the impression that the Maui Classic doesn't care how it's structured, just as long as Chaminade is occupied. Even tho Chaminade is now going on an every-other-year participation in the Big Maui, I think their days are numbered. TV money and the P5 teams desire to set their own skeds could ultimately win out.

Perhaps the other teams will come from the other 4 teams schedule. Auburn, Gonzaga, Iowa State and San Diego State haven't released their schedules yet. I would hate to think that would be the way the tournament treats.
