Coach Avery Johnson has done an excellent job on the recruiting trail thus far, which is obviously the first piece to building a program. To that end, the more exposure he can get the better, and it’s tough to imagine a better way than this to gain some:

Avery seems to get that raising the perception of the program will require difficult scheduling and strong performance against the tough slate. The fact that the event is held in the Bahamas is just icing on the cake. Looking forward to this one.
