Gonzaga, Arizona, Duke among teams in loaded Maui Invitational

The Zags will either draw an Iowa State team that should be much improved after a rare down season a year ago or a Arizona team that said goodbye to its five leading scorers this past spring and will need its sophomore class to step up. "Being invited to participate is a great honor for our program and we, along with our dedicated fans, are looking forward to the entire experience".

Iowa State is making its second appearance in the tournament, while Arizona is playing in Maui for the seventh time.

Illinois' game against Gonzaga will tip off at 10:30 p.m. on November 19 and air on ESPN2.

In openers on the other half of the bracket, Duke faces San Diego State and Auburn meets Xavier.

The schedule for the 2018 Maui Invitational is out; Duke basketball will take on San Diego State in its opening round matchup.

Gonzaga is ranked as a top-five team in many preseason media polls with an experienced roster. It's no wonder the Maui Invitational will reclaim its place as the holiday season's most anticipated college basketball tournament. Gonzaga won the 2009 Maui championship.

"This year's tournament has arguably the strongest field in the history of the event". The Blue Devils won the tournament title in 1992, 1997, 2001, 2007 and 2011. Ticket packages, based on availability, will be available for purchase through the Tournament website, www.mauiinvitational.com/tickets, beginning at 4 p.m. ET on August 8.
