Today, the field for the 2012 Charleston Classic was finalized. It is a very good one, probably the best that the tournament has had.
Baylor, who made the Elite Eight last season and will be ranked in the top 15 nationally, will be in the tourney, along with Murray State, who lost just two games last season and brings back nationally-known PG Isaiah Cannan; Colorado, who won the Pac 12 tournament, along with the home-standing College of Charleston Cougars.
St. John's of the Big East with known coach Steve Lavin will be in the tournament, along with Auburn from the SEC, the ACC's Boston College, and the Dayton Flyers of the Atlantic Ten.
The tournament will play on Nov. 15, 16, and 18 at the TD Arena in downtown Charleston, an arena that seats over 5,000.
This will be a very exciting field. Be sure to make your plans for that weekend in the Lowcountry.
