With a field that includes Kansas, Indiana and UCLA, the Maui Invitational has compiled yet another solid bracket.
The loaded field joining Chaminade in the 32nd edition of the premier early-season tournament will include Kansas, Indiana, St. John's, UCLA, UNLV, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. The Maui Jim Maui Invitational Championship Round will be held Nov. 23, 24 and 25, 2015, on the island of Maui. After opening with host-school Chaminade, KU will play either UNLV or UCLA in its second game Nov. 24 and St. John's, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest or Indiana on the final day, Nov. 25.
“My son (Evan) plays on Bill’s team. That’s one reason,” Danny Manning said of not wanting to play KU and coach Bill Self. “I spent a lot of time with coach Self. He gave me my break in the coaching profession (working for Self nine years). I think the world of him. I’m just glad we’re not on the same side of the bracket. Wake Forest is my favorite college basketball team, but a close second is Kansas mainly because my son is there right now.”
Beaty, the former head coach at North Dallas and Irving MacArthur, plans to use the relationships nurtured for years at field houses and family rooms all over Texas to turn around the tortured Jayhawks. He’s not the only one who will employ this strategy; new SMU coach Chad Morris and Tulsa coach Philip Montgomery were also former Texas high school coaches.
Eight total events, including seven competitions inside historic Robinson Natatorium will give fans a glimpse of a promising Kansas swimming and diving squad and several Olympic hopefuls during the 2015-16 season.

Paul Pierce basically threw a bounce pass for a first pitch at the Dodgers game.
Elier Leyva of the Delmarva Shorebirds won't likely make the mistake again of not touching the plate when completing a home run trot. Manager Nestor Rojas of the Augusta GreenJackets made the appeal and umpire Justin Robinson went for it, negating the home run and costing Delmarva a lead and possibly the game.
In a play initially ruled a catch, the replay system awarded Jose Abreu a home run. (Mr Ed says: But did he establish himself as a runner???)
