The Gulf Coast Showcase announced its 2015 field Tuesday with Drake representing the Missouri Valley Conference and Milwaukee representing the Horizon League.
Those two programs join MAC title contender Central Michigan, Murray State, Western Kentucky, Weber State, Pepperdine and Duquesne in the eight-team field.
“We created the men’s event to be a premium tournament strictly for college basketball’s top mid-major schools,” said Brooks Downing, president of bd Global, the firm that runs the event. . “Our men’s field is our deepest in three years with quality programs from around the country. To then follow it up with the best regular season women’s tournament in the country, it will certainly be an exciting week at Germain Arena.”
The tournament will take place Nov. 23-25 at Germain Arena in Estero, Florida.
