The matchups have been released!
The full bracket for the 2017 Wooden Legacy basketball tournament has been released, with host Cal State Fullerton taking on the Georgia Bulldogs on opening night.
The tournament, which Fullerton has hosted since 2013 and will be their 11th time hosting, begins on November 23 and runs through November 26, scattering 12 total games. The Thanksgiving tournament will be a good test to see how this Fullerton squad stacks up against a variety of D-1 opponents.
The tournament will include the following teams:
- Cal State Fullerton
- Saint Mary’s
- Saint Joseph’s
- Washington State
- San Diego State
- Sacramento State
Out of the teams, Saint Mary’s and Georgia seem to be the favorites, as they’re the only other two teams that had postseason berths besides the Titans. I, for one, am eager to see how this team performs. With the graduation of Tre Coggins and Leslie Lionheart, I want to see how the team rotates and replaces those two leaders.
Coggins was the Titans’ leading scorer last year and finished his career off with All-Conference honors. Although Kyle Allman is more than capable of being the ‘man’, who’s going to step up into that No. 2 role?
