Myrtle Beach Invitational


Recommended Posts

Just purchased my tickets to this tournament.   Games are Thursday, Friday and Sunday before thanksgiving.   It’s not too bad a drive from Jacksonville.   It would be nice if we could get wins over Charleston and Wichita State to take the title.   Myrtle Beach is a very nice area, but it’s a good 20 minutes from CCU where the tournament is being played.   Who else is going???

I went through the tournament website that directs you to the Coastal Carolina ticketing page.   I already had an account because I went to a CCU baseball game this year so it was super easy.   My wife and I will be attending.  @Billiken Rich  You in?…
 

One of my buddies I work with lives literally across the street from that Publix.  She unfortunately did not win.

Not so much for recent preseason tourneys:

2022: Lost to Maryland, beat Providence in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off.

2021: Won the Cancun Challenge.

2020: Won the Billiken Classic (at home).

2019: Won the Gotham Classic.

I’m going. I’m going to get the center court sideline pkg. Okie are these reserved seats or open? 

It looks like everything is General Admission by section.    We also got center sideline.  Other than sessions featuring the host CCU, I would be surprised if there are large crowds.  I guess Furman and C of C might bring a few hundred people each.

Just called ticket office , said they will sell session tickets starting in October sometime, will have an early session( 2 games) and a late session(2 games).  Of course we won't know what session we will be playing in , till the games are played.

CofC will have a good following. Kelsey has excited the whole town about Cougar hoops. They were a very hot ticket last season.

That's a good point.  Never been to a preseason tournament.  Also never seen the Billikens win on the road in person..........

T-Rank's projections for next season look like this:

Charleston - 88

Vermont - 133

SLU - 139

Wyoming - 236

Wichita State - 105

Costal Carolina - 313

Furman - 124

Liberty - 83

If the bracket were to go chalk according to these rankings, SLU would finish in 4th place W over Wyoming, loss to Charleston, loss to Wichita State.

Good news for SLU is that this is a very winnable tournament if they exceed expectations a bit.  Bad news is there aren't any signature Ws in there and losing more than 1 game probably ends up looking brutal on the resume.

That beating Maryland put on us was brutal to watch, they had good fans though. That Providence game was electric, there's something to be said about being 1 of maybe 100ish Billiken fans in a sea of fans from the opposing team and getting the win. 

We hit the casino with 10 mins left in the Maryland game. That was convenient

Vermont, Charleston, Liberty and Furman --- all opponents in this MTE --- are projected automatic qualifiers in their respective conferences in Lunardi's latest 'way-too-ear;y- March Madness projections.

Good.  Then nine of them should feel the need to beat the Billikens in order to go to the NCAAs.
