The event was originally scheduled to take place in the Bahamas as the “Battle 4 Atlantis” tournament. The tournament was canceled due to COVID-19 but the teams involved still wanted to hold the event so they moved it to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Utah was apart of the field along with Creighton, Memphis, South Dakota, Texas A&M, West Virginia, Ohio State and Wichita State. Ohio State pulled out and was replaced by St. Mary’s and now the Aggies will reportedly take Dayton’s place.
