Old Spice Classic features impressive group
ORLANDO – The Old Spice Classic doesn't need any Old Spice products to spruce it up.
There's nothing malodorous here, just an incredible eight-team field that includes seven teams that were ranked in our Preseason Top 65 Countdown. Five of them were in the NCAA tournament last year, and four of them will enter the event ranked in The Associated Press Top 25.
It's Madness in November. The winner will come away brimming with confidence and knowing it's capable of ending up in Detroit for the Final Four.
Here's a preview of the Old Spice Classic, which begins Thanksgiving Day and includes games on Friday and the final on Sunday night.
Teams are listed below in the predicted order of finish:
1. Michigan State (2-0)
2. Tennessee (3-0)
3. Gonzaga (2-0)
4. Georgetown (2-0)
5. Siena (2-0)
6. Oklahoma State (4-0)
7. Maryland (3-0)
8. Wichita State (2-1)
