The Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament gets going today in the Bahamas, with No. 3 Kansas taking on N.C. State to start. Dayton-Wisconsin will follow, while USC-BYU will be up next. Tennessee and Butler will finish off day one.
Win or lose, Tennessee will face either USC or BYU on Thursday.
Butler enters the tournament 3-1 so far, with their only loss coming to Penn State (68-62). Butler moved on from LaVall Jordan during the offseason, turning to former Ohio State head coach Thad Matta. The 54 year old hasn’t coached since parting ways with the Buckeyes back in 2017.
