Tough draw: Memphis is considering making a stop on the Big Island on its way to the EA Sports Maui Invitational, but UH-Hilo coach Jeff Law said the status of a possible matchup with the Tigers remains hazy.
"We don't know how that's going to play out because we don't have a contract," Law said.
Memphis was a top seed in the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the Oakland Regional final before losing to UCLA. The Rainbows had hoped to schedule Memphis, but recent history might have worked against them.
"It's going to be harder for them to get those guys simply because of what they did to Michigan State last year," Law said.
Joining Memphis on Maui on Nov. 20-22 will be DePaul, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Purdue, UCLA and host Chaminade.
