Michigan to play in 2015 Battle 4 Atlantis

Dylan Burkhardt

Michigan will head to the Bahamas for Thanksgiving next season.

The Wolverines will represent the Big Ten in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament. The 2015 field will also include Gonzaga, Syracuse, Texas, Texas A&M, UConn, Washington and Charlotte.

Battle 4 Atlantis is one of the fastest growing preseason tournaments and has attracted a host of popular schools – including Duke, UConn, Louisville, Kansas, Villanova, Wisconsin and North Carolina – in its first three years.

Battle 4 Atlantis not only includes a nice November trip to the Bahamas, it’s also one of the only preseason tournaments that pays schools to attend.

    Great field… That will show a lot for a hopefully older team.

    With Syracuse in the field, maybe this means they won’t have to make a return trip to the Carrier Dome for the ACC challenge. Which is fine with me. I am still hoping they will play in Chapel Hill for the first time in forever.

      ACC B1G challenge intentionally tries to not schedule the same opponents on back to back years. I think the chances of a Syracuse UM rematch next season that way are probably slim.

        Thanks for the clarification, DB. Thinking back over the last few years, I can see that you’re absolutely right. I guess I’m just bored of the Syracuse zone and want OSU/MSU to stop hogging Carolina.

    I just got back from the Progressive Classic in Brooklyn and would only have had a better time if Michigan were able to hold off Villanova. Overall a really fun experience. Amazing support there from Michigan fans there. Hopefully some fan packages for this event come out because this looks like an even better way to spend Thanksgiving week! What a great field of teams as well. Here’s hoping we get Charlotte in round 1 for a little revenge. :)
