Tournament Preview: Guide to the Maui Jim Maui Invitational

Chaminade is a relatively small college located in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Silverswords compete in the Pacific West Conference at the Division II level, and as of now, Chaminade is the only non-Division I team in the Maui Invitational.

In other words, Kansas basketball should take care of Chaminade without much of a problem. The Silverswords are 8–92 in the tournament all-time, and at this point, it’s unlikely they’ll get that ninth win anytime soon.

The Jayhawks should have a significant matchup advantage at every position for the entire night. Centers Udoka Azubuike, Silvio De Sousa, and David McCormack should have especially good games, considering the tallest player on the Chaminade roster is junior Bill Awet, who’s listed at six-foot-eight and 200 pounds.

Still, the Jayhawks have to be humble.

Just look at what Evansville did to Kentucky in Rupp Arena a couple of weeks ago. The underdog Evansville Purple Aces came into a hostile environment and took down the #1 team in the country, and Kentucky will have to live with that embarrassment for the rest of the season.

Knowing Bill Self and the kind of guys on the team, it’s hard to see them having a lax attitude.

Assuming Kansas gets past Chaminade, the Jayhawks’ next opponent will be the winner of UCLA and BYU, which will take place following the Kansas game (that game will be broadcast on ESPN2).

The Jayhawks have a good chance to take home another Maui Invitational title this season, and hopefully, it’s the Michigan State Spartans that they meet in the title game. It all starts tonight though with Chaminade.
