Bracket Maui Invitational 2022: schedule, participating teams, live stream

The biggest prize on the early-season college basketball slate is the 2022 Maui Invitational, which returns to the Lahaina Civic Center in Maui, Hawai’i after being moved to Las Vegas last year due to COVID. -19. Many of the incoming NCAA Tournament teams make it into the eight-team group, and the finally air-conditioned gym returns as the hoops’ vacation home once again

The No. 21 Texas Tech Red Raiders take on the No. 10 Creighton Bluejays in the lid lifter, with both teams undefeated so far. TTU’s Kevin Obanor is still in college and had 15 points and eight rebounds in his win over Louisiana Tech last Monday. Creighton brings both offense and defense to the Top 30 via KenPom, and has allowed just 11 free throws per 100 field goal attempts so far, the best rate in the nation when they started 4- 0.

In the nightcap, the No. 14 Arizona Wildcats take on the Cincinnati Bearcats, as the U of A returns two stars from last year’s Pac-12 champions in Kerr Kriisa and Azuolas Tubelis. With Bennedict Mathurin already in the NBA, these two should provide plenty of firepower for the team with the fastest pace in all of college basketball so far this season (77.5 possessions per match).

UC lost to Northern Kentucky 64-51 on Wednesday, and fifth-year senior David DeJulius is another one of those ‘how’s he still in college’ players who will be asked to guide a younger team .

This is a knockout tournament, and the losing teams will continue to play each other via consolation brackets for third through eighth place.
