Jamaica’s tourist capital, Montego Bay, will once again host the third staging of the Jersey Mike Jamaica Classic. One of the top college basketball pre-conference season events, the weekend tournament will take place from Friday, November 22, to Sunday, November 24, at the Montego Bay Convention Centre.

This year’s tournament, which will be headlined by Southeastern Conference powerhouse Louisiana State, has also attracted the likes of Mountain West Conference leader Utah State, Conference USA title contender North Texas, and Rhode Island.
