Diamond Head Classic Bracket Get Acrobat Reader

HONOLULU – The bracket for the 2012 Diamond Head Classic – held Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday, Dec. 22, 23 & 25, at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu, Hawaii – has been set for the eight competing teams: host Hawaii, plus Arizona, East Tennessee State, Indiana State, Miami (FL), Ole Miss, San Diego State and San Francisco. The times of each game will be released at a later date.

ESPNU will carry eight of the tournament games, including all four first-round games. ESPN2 will air the third-place game and the championship game on Christmas day, along with one of the semifinals on Dec. 23. ESPN3 will have one game, and the entire tournament will be available through WatchESPN, accessible online at WatchESPN.com and through smartphones and tablets via the WatchESPN app to fans who receive their video subscription from an affiliated provider.

Tournament highlights:

  • ESPNU will show all four first-round games (times TBD), featuring Ole Miss vs. Indiana State, San Diego State vs. San Francisco, Arizona vs. East Tennessee State and Miami vs. Hawaii.
  • San Diego State is ranked No. 16 and Arizona stands at No. 17 in ESPN.com’s early men’s preseason top 25 poll.
  • Six of the eight teams grabbed 2012 postseason berths.

If the Rebels defeat Indiana State in the first round, they would advance to face the winner between San Diego State and San Francisco. If Ole Miss won that one, the potential championship-game opponent would be Arizona, ETSU, Miami or Hawaii.

The 2012 Diamond Head Classic, an eight-team men’s college basketball tournament, will feature 12 games over the three days. Each team will compete in one game per day, advancing through a bracket-tournament format. The two teams that remain undefeated throughout will face off in a championship match.

The family-friendly tournament and resort destination of Honolulu will host the teams to three days of play, practices and the unique spirit of Aloha from the Hawaiian Islands. Teams will also have the opportunity to attend the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl played during the same week. Additional information, including travel packages, can be found on the Diamond Head Classic website at www.diamondheadclassic.com.

The Diamond Head Classic is owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television (ERT), a subsidiary of ESPN.

The University of Southern California won the inaugural tournament in 2009, followed by Butler in 2010.

Over the last few years, Ole Miss has taken part in a tropical setting early-season tournament every year, including such locations as Cancun (Mexico), San Juan (Puerto Rico) and St. Thomas (U.S. Virgin Islands).

The Rebels have not played a men’s basketball game in the state of Hawaii since the 2000-01 season.
