Thursday, August 4, 2011
LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) -- Duke will face Tennessee in the championship round of the EA Sports Maui Invitational, which is undergoing its first expansion since 1986.
Other matchups at the Lahaina Civic Center on Nov. 21 include Michigan vs. Memphis, UCLA facing host Chaminade and Georgetown playing Kansas. The winners meet in the semifinals on Nov. 22, with the championship game on Nov. 23.
Duke has won a record four EA Sports Maui Invitationals in as many appearances.
For the first time since the field expanded from four to eight teams in 1986, there will be "regional games" that will include four schools -- Towson, North Carolina-Greensboro, Belmont and Middle Tennessee State -- which will play games on the mainland as part of the new 12-team format.
