For nearly four decades, the Maui Invitational has been one of the most competitive college basketball tournaments. And this year’s tournament, which tips off on November 20, may be its most competitive yet.
Maui Invitational 2023 streaming details
The Maui Invitational is an annual event where eight of the top college basketball teams in the country vie for the Maui Invitational Championship. The games, which will be played over two days, will see Tennessee, Syracuse, Purdue, Gonzaga, Kansas, Chaminade, UCLA, and Marquette face off. And although they’re playing in Hawaii, they’re still playing at times that folks across the U.S. will find suitable.
But the major question on everyone’s mind centers on which of the top teams in the tournament will leave the Maui Invitational with a loss. At 3-0, Kansas is the top-ranked men’s college basketball team in the country, which would suggest it’s a favorite. But Purdue is ranked second and is also undefeated. Marquette is ranked fourth in the country and undefeated. Tennessee, which is currently ranked seventh in the country is similarly undefeated.
In other words, the competition will be fierce. And there’s at least a sizable chance that the championship game could see the top two countries in the country face off in a preview of what we might see next year during March Madness.
Needless to say, the legion of fans who love college basketball are keeping a close eye on the Maui Invitational this year. And luckily, there are plenty of ways to watch the tournament. Read on to learn how to watch the Maui Invitational, along with a look at the tournament schedule.
