Looking at the 2017 bracket, every team got 3 games so maybe Penn will get to play some Power 5 schools

It is a weekend right before Thanksgiving. Miss only 3 days of work for 10 days in the Caribbean?

From the press release:

“Every game from the Paradise Jam will stream live on subscription-based FloHoops (www.FloHoops.com).”

I take it playing a non-DI school is not required to show the Jam's bouncer at the door.

As I just mentioned on the twitters... this means no more MTEs for Penn until 2021.

The 2-in-4 is such a stupid, stupid, stupid Ivy rule.

Yeah it really is a dumb rule, but at least this is an actual good event and seems like the right timing for Penn to be a part of a legit one!

I’m psyched to go! The teams we face should be intimidated playing the 2017-2018 Ivy Champs.

couple that with the fact that that same team is from the city of the NFL Champs, and they will be shaking in their high tops!

Don't make reservations for this one yet. The tournament is held on St Thomas. Just read a travel article that said while the airport is open again, there are a number of large hotels which don't expect to open until the end of the year. This was a tournament that got moved to the mainland last year because of one of the terrible hurricanes (I forget which one).
