Chicago Sun-Times
Steve Tucker's inside look at various professional and amateur sports

Chicago Invitational ??? or maybe not

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
College mens basketball's Chicago Invitational Nov. 26-27 at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates, has an eight-team field of Purdue, Southern Illinois, Richmond, Wright State, Austin Peay, Oakland (Michigan), Southern and Charleston Southern.
So what's Chicago about this event ?

It is not being contested in Chicago and there are no Chicago-area teams.

Last year Northwestern won it and beat Notre Dame in a Friday night semifinal. And the games were played at the UIC Pavilion, which the last time I looked was in the city of Chicago.
