Marquette turnovers, Kansas' scoring and... Zach Edey: What we learned in Maui

The Maui Invitational is a rite of November in men's college hoops, and the 2023 version was unlike any Invitational we've ever seen.

This year's event was played not on Maui but about 80 miles away in Honolulu, due to the devastating wildfires that swept through Lahaina in August. The traditional host venue, the Lahaina Civic Center, is still serving as a vital facility for ongoing recovery efforts in western Maui.

Fans on the island of Oahu were treated to the strongest Invitational Field in recent memory. Three of the AP poll's top four teams and five of the top 11 were featured in a loaded bracket.
