Cougars to play in DIRECT-TV Classic in 2013

The College of Charleston men’s basketball team is one of seven teams locked in to the eight-team field for the 2013 DIRECTV Classic to be held over the Thanksgiving holiday on Nov. 28, 29 & Dec. 1, in Anaheim, Calif., next year.

The Cougars are joined in the seventh annual tournament field by Arizona State (Pac-12), Creighton (Missouri Valley), George Washington (Atlantic 10), Marquette (BIG EAST), Miami (ACC) and San Diego State (Mountain West). The eighth team will be announced at a later date.

The 2013 DIRECTV Classic will feature a bracket format with 12 games over three days. Each team will compete in one game per day, advancing through the bracket. The two teams that remain undefeated throughout the tournament will face off in a championship game on the final day of competition.

The College of Charleston can only compete in the Charleston Classic once every four years. This tournament is one of several that ESPN puts on during the months of November and December.
