It's still five years down the road, but this one is worth the wait: UConn is one of 16 schools to commit to a preseason tournament to honor Nike founder Phil Knight in Portland, Ore., in November, 2017. Here's the story from espn.com
All the participating schools are "Nike schools." The roster of attendees: UConn, Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, Michigan State, Ohio State, Florida, Georgetown, Texas, Oklahoma, Stanford, Oregon, Xavier, Butler, Gonzaga and Portland.
Wow. Impressive. Very impressive.
