GW Men's Hoops in Field for 2013 Anaheim Classic in Anaheim, Calif.
Colonials in Competitive Eight-Team Field for Three-Game Tournament in 2013-14 Season
Nov. 23, 2012
The George Washington men's basketball team will be part of an eight-team field at the 2013 Anaheim Classic, to be held over Thanksgiving weekend, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, Nov. 28, 29 & Dec. 1, in Anaheim, Calif.
"We're excited to be headed back to California to compete in next year's Anaheim Classic with a national ESPN audience," said Coach Mike Lonergan. "The tournament field is extremely competitive and should prove to be a solid three-game test for our team next year."
GW, which played in Berkeley, Calif., against the Cal Golden Bears in the 2011 CBE Classic, will be joined in the seventh annual tournament by Arizona State, College of Charleston, Creighton, Marquette, Miami (Fla.) and San Diego State. The eighth team will be announced at a later date.
"After playing in the Bay Area last season, we're excited to have our men's basketball team return to California, a state from which GW draws hundreds of students each year and where more than 10,000 alumni live," said Director of Athletics and Recreation Patrick Nero. "We hope all of our West Coast Colonials will come Raise High the Buff and Blue with the team in Southern California next Thanksgiving."
The 2013 Anaheim Classic will feature a bracket format with 12 games over three days. Each team will compete in one game per day, advancing through the bracket. The two teams that remain undefeated throughout will face off in a championship game on the final day of competition.
The Big West Conference will again serve as the host conference for the Anaheim Classic. Previous tournament champions include USC, Wake Forest, West Virginia, UNLV and Saint Louis.
The family friendly tournament hosts the teams for three days of tournament play, practices and events. Additional information, including travel packages, can be found on the Anaheim Classic website at www.anaheimclassic.com.
The Anaheim Classic is owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television (ERT), a subsidiary of ESPN.
