Alabama will play in the 2018 Gildan Charleston Classic
ESPN Events announced today. We will have 3 games November 15,16, and 18 of 2018. The field includes Wichita State, Purdue, Virginia Tech, Ball State, Appalachian State, Davidson, and Northeastern.
My only complaint with Avery is that I wish he would get us in better pre-conference tournaments. This year's Barclay Classic will be the 2nd year in a row we're in a tournament that isn't even televised. Since ESPN Events is running the Charleston tournament, I assume it will at least be on TV, so that's an improvement. Also, while they are quality programs with usually good teams; I'm getting a little tired of playing Wichita State and Purdue all the time.
