Report: 2020 Maui Invitational still on schedule in Hawaii

According to a note on Twitter from Jon Rothstein, as of right now, the 2020 Maui Invitational is still scheduled to be held on time in Hawaii. However, contingency plans are being discussed, too.

The field for the 2020 event is, as usual, quite good; North Carolina is set to represent the ACC. Stanford, Indiana, Texas, Alabama, Davidson, UNLV and Providence round out the list.

The 2020 event is set to take place Nov. 23-25 at the historic Lahaina Civic Center. Those dates were announced last April.

North Carolina last participated out in Maui during the 2016-17 season; that year, the Tar Heels again won the event. UNC has competed in the Maui seven times — tied for the most appearances in tournament history. The 2016 victory marked the fourth time North Carolina has won the Maui. UNC went on the win the 2017 NCAA Tournament later in the season, too.

Back in May, Notre Dame, which won the 2017 Maui Invitational, received an invite to the 2021 tournament.
