Huskies Heading Back to Paradise Jam

Looks like both the UConn men's and women's teams will be competing in the 2012 Paradise Jam in the Virgin Islands.

The Register's intrepid UConn women's basketball beat writer Jim Fuller has learned that both teams will be competing, though the women's field has yet to be determined.

According to tournament director Sean Christensen, the eight-team men's field (which will be split into two groups of four teams) is currently as follows:

New Mexico
Mercer University
Wake Forest
George Mason
University of Illnois Chicago (UIC)
Quinnipiac University

No dates yet, but this year's men's tournament begins Nov. 18 and the women's starts Nov. 24.

The UConn men won the event three years ago, beating La Salle, Miami and Wisconsin.
