The Georgia Bulldogs basketball team has signed a deal to play in a tournament in Kansas City, MO in November 2011, the Athens Banner-Herald has reported.
The name of the tournament was not indicated but is presumed to be the CBE Classic. It will feature a total of four games for the Dawgs. Two regional games will be played in Athens, while the semifinals, championship and consolation games will be played in Kansas City.
From the ABH:
The first two rounds will be between Nov. 13 and Nov. 17 at four different sites.
The teams in the tournament will be divided into a host pool (four teams) and travel pool (up to eight teams).
Georgia is in the host pool and will play two regional-round games in Athens at Stegeman Coliseum.
The Bulldogs will then travel to Kansas City along with three other teams and play games in the semifinal and championship rounds (including consolation game) in the Sprint Center on Nov. 21 and 22, according to a signed contract obtained through an Open Records request. The remainder of the field plays in subregionals at campus sites.
