re: LSU Basketball - Advocare Invitational Tournament Schedule
CoC returns 2 of their top 3 scorers and 3 of their top 6 players (in accordance with minutes played). They should (or at least could) be a sound mid-major (top 100/fringe top 50 which is very important since it's a neutral site game). We should know a little more about them before the game as they play @ Oklahoma St. 4 days before the tournament officially starts.

FSU is a good team to play because they are generally very athletic and good defensively. The downside is they are notoriously inconsistent. They just as easily could end up being a NCAAT team at the end of the year or missing the NIT. That said, some early NCAAT predictions have them as a top 4-5 seed and many expect them to be a top 25 team to start the year. Assuming they don't dump all over themselves in the first few weeks of the season (same for LSU) a FSU/LSU game might likely be one between two top 25 opponents.

The tournament doesn't look great on paper (at least when compared to the Maui tournament last year). But LSU probably got the best draw, in terms of playing good opponents, it could hope for. A schedule of CoC, FSU, Nova could be 3 games vs. teams who will end the season in the top 50.

I know nova lost some guys to the nba. Is there still a chance they could be ranked #1 for a matchup with LSU in this?

With the tournament being so early in the season it is highly doubtful they would be ranked #1 coming in. However, even with their losses to the NBA, most way too early season polls still have them as a top 10 team. Assuming they do well in their few games leading up to this tournament, you should still see them in that top 10 range, which combined with their name recognition would make for a huge matchup for LSU.

Interested in the review of your trip with Mr. Fun. We almost pulled the trigger but decided to go to Vegas in December for the St. Mary game.

will do. Yeah, Vegas looks fun but I wanted to be able to hit Disney. Lived in Tampa for 3 years and never made it there, even though me and my girl were actually in the parking lot once..
