Good luck trying to keep the sequence of events straight but the pairings have been announced for the highly-vaunted Battle 4 Atlantis basketball tournament in the Bahamas.
Finding NBC Sports and AXS.tv on television and/or the Internet should be a priority as well.
What we know for sure is that the University of Louisville will play Samford at the KFC Yum! Center on Nov. 15. UofLSports.com indicates that game is considered part of the tournament but it won’t affect the brackets.
Then Rick Pitino’s team will travel to the islands to face Nothern Iowa on Nov. 22, hoping to stay in the winner’s bracket. The best the loser can do after that is compete for fifth place.
UofL will next face the winner or loser of the Missouri vs. Stanford matchup on Nov. 23 at either 3:30 or 9:30 p.m. Other initial matchups include Duke facing Minnesota and Memphis playing Virginia Commonwealth.
NBC Sports Network will air the 7 and 9:30 p.m. games each day, while AXS.tv will air the 1 and 3:30 p.m. games. The championship game will be played at 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 24.
