Battle 4 Atlantis 2018
 

ud2 08-30-2017 10:45 AM

Wow, a really tough field. That might be the top 2018 exempt tournament field.

Medford 08-30-2017 10:49 AM

on paper, that's probably the strongest field UD has faced since the Mauii tournament when they faced UConn, Arizona (#2), and Maryland

UD62 08-30-2017 10:58 AM

Doubt we will be the number one seed. May well be 7th. If we want to move up we have to play up.

This tournament is next year, not this year! That is a long way off. Wisconsin, Florida, Virginia, Butler, Stanford, Middle Tennessee, Oklahoma and Dayton in the Bahamas. There i list the teams for those of you having trouble getting to the Rothstein Fan Rag article.

IMHO this is the best exempt tournament out there now. They attract a great field every year. For east coast teams it's much easier travel than the Maui invitational for both the fans and teams. The ballroom gym always looks great on TV and they light the place up like its a vegas show during timeouts.

This may be the most stacked tournament field I have ever seen, period.

Maybe a good time to showcase to potential 2018 recruits who they will be playing against in a tournament atmosphere!

Reminds me of 2000 Maui, where we won 2 of 3. I'd take that.

You haven't seen the Phil Knight invitational this fall then.

Wasn't counting that because it is not a traditional 8 team tournament.

Awesome field. I wish just once the Flyers would play in one of the few remaining tourneys closer to Christmas, as no way the wife can take off work ever in November. Maybe I should just ask her if I can take a date :eek:

I called Pro Source ticket office today asking for any details about the tourney.

They had none to offer ... no surprise ... since the tourney website today is selling tickets and rooms for this Thanksgiving tourney.

They said UD plans to use Anthony Travel ... the same ESPN travel agent as the past ... and ticket holders will be sent hotel/ticket info in 2018 in the summer time range.

Does Ideal Travel plan to be offering packages? When will they be available to the public?

Buster Goode 09-05-2017 02:44 PM

Great field. Assuming this island still exists after Hurricane Irma, I'd like to attend this tournament.

Yes, God willing.
Got to get past Charleston first before shifting focus.

On Chicago radio this morning apparently Loyola is in talks to enter the Battle for Atlantis

Looking at the bracket:

https://www.atlantisbahamas.com/b4a

I'm trying to figure out the seeding (unless they didn't bother seeding).

UVA has to be #1, which makes MTSU #8. If they followed normal seeding then we are likely the #5.

My best guess is:

1. Virginia
2. Florida
3. Wisconsin
4. Butler
5. Dayton
6. Stanford
7. Oklahoma
8. MTSU

Travel Package
 
MrsFF (aka Leslie at Ideal Travel) has released another package option:

Flexible package for Atlantis!
We have sold out our original air-inclusive package. But some of you may want a little more flexibility in your travels to follow the Flyers in November. There are some decent flights still available from Columbus and Cincinnati. Perhaps you would like to stay down in the Bahamas a couple of extra days. Let Ideal Travel provide you with a flexible alternative. You take care of your own air and ground transportation, we take care of your game tickets and lodging.

Flex Package includes:


Hotel accommodation in your choice of a king bedded or 2 double bedded room at the Comfort Suites Paradise Island (located a 5-minute walk from the Atlantis Resort)
Game tickets to all 3 UD basketball games in the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament (games are played November 21st-23rd)
Price will vary depending on how many nights you choose to stay in the Bahamas. 4-night hotel and game ticket packages starting at $1000 per person. Contact us for a quote based on your specific length of stay.

This rate includes all taxes, resort fee, energy surcharge, pool/beach surcharge, and housekeeping gratuity.

Additional perks of Comfort Suites Paradise Island include:
 COMPLIMENTARY Full Buffet Breakfast
 Full use of all the facilities at the Atlantis Resort (pools, waterpark...though you will need to supply your own gambling money for the casino.)
 Free Wi-Fi

Your reservation can be taken right over the phone with a call to Leslie at Ideal Travel: 937-223-7447.


Optional travel insurance may be purchased from Travel Guard. Please request a quote at the time of booking.
We hope you will join the other Ideal Travel Flyer Fanatics in the Bahamas in November.
Go Flyers!
Sincerely,
Leslie Gonya
