SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The cancellation of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament opened the doors for the Utah Men’s Basketball team to play in the Bad Boy Mowers Crossover Classic during the week of Thanksgiving for their season opener.
The Battle 4 Atlantis was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The original field of that tournament, besides Duke, will now play in the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
