The 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer still hasn't announced its field.
Many of you are wondering why.
So here's why: A source with knowledge of the situation said the Gazelle Group is waiting on one more signed contract to finalize the field. When it arrives the complete field will be announced, and the source said that should happen next week. For the UMass fans who keep emailing, the source said it appears the Minutemen will open the event in the regional at Southern Illinois. The Salukis are a regional host along with Duke, UCLA and Michigan.
How the bracket will be drawn is yet to be determined, the source said. But rest assured UCLA and Duke will be on opposite sides to create an opportunity for the Bruins and Blue Devils to meet in the finals at New York's Madison Square Garden on Nov. 21.
