2020 Maui Invitational moved to Asheville, NC

The 2020 Maui Invitational is moving east for 2020. According to a report from college hoops insider Jon Rothstein, the 2020 Maui Invitational will in fact — as has been speculated for several weeks now — take place in Asheville, North Carolina.

The 2020 Maui features a strong eight-team field, including the North Carolina Tar Heels. The event run run from Nov. 11-Dec. 2.

Due to COVID-19, a variety of early-season, high-profile tournaments will change location. For example: the 2020 Battle 4 Atlantis will move to South Dakota.

Back in early July, the tournament still planned on taking place at its annual host site in Hawaii; however, at the time, organizers started to form contingency plans, too.

Earlier this week, the NCAA announced that Nov. 25 will mark the official start date for the 2020-21 college basketball season. As of right now, the ACC still plans to have a non-conference component to its scheduling model; along with participation in a multiple-team event (MTE), like the Maui Invitational, teams will also have additional room for other out-of-conference foes.
