The coaches, players and fans of the Evansville men’s basketball program got to plug into the excitement of the Men’s Cancun Challenge, as tournament officials were on campus this week to present the Aces with the event’s custom guitar invitation.
Evansville joins Fresno State, George Mason and Louisiana Tech in the Riviera Division of the event, which will be held Nov. 21-22 at the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya.
This is the first time Evansville will make the trip to the event; all Riviera Division games will be televised, with official matchups and game times to be announced later this year.
The Cancun Challenge was recently ranked by Sports Illustrated as one of the top five college basketball travel tournaments. The 2017 men’s event also features Binghamton, Cal State Northridge, Montana State and Southeast Missouri State in the Mayan Division, with all games played in the converted ballroom of the resort. This tournament will mark the 10th year of the Men's Cancun Challenge.
