Davidson and UMass have been added to the 2013 Charleston Classic field, ESPN Regional Television announced today.
The eight-team tournament field, which also includes the Georgia Bulldogs, is now complete. Georgia was announced as a participant back in November.
The 2013 Charleston Classic is set for Nov. 21-24 at TD Arena in Charleston, South Carolina. The tournament includes eight teams and will feature a bracket format with 12 games over three days. The two undefeated teams will meet in the championship game.
The complete field includes Georgia, Clemson, Davidson, Nebraska, New Mexico, Temple, UAB, and UMass.
This will be the fourth consecutive year that the Hoop Dawgs have played in an early-season tournament. Georgia has played in the Old Spice Classic (2010), Progressive CBE Classic (2011), and Progressive Legends Classic (2012). In 2014, the Bulldogs will participate in the NIT Season Tip-Off.
Georgia’s 2013-14 basketball schedule has seven confirmed games. UGA is currently scheduled to host Georgia Tech, Gardner-Webb, and Lipscomb and travel to George Washington.
