Basketball: LSU to take on Michigan in Maui this November

Want to take a trip to Hawaii this fall? If you do, you can catch the Tigers in the Maui Invitational on Nov. 20 at the Lahaina Civic Center.

LSU is set to play Michigan. The game will air at 10:30 p.m. CT on ESPNU.

“It’s a great feeling,” said LSU Coach Will Wade, according to LSU Sports Information. “I’m obviously familiar with most of the teams. Michigan will be a big challenge for us. They’re a perennial national program. They’ve had tremendous teams, tremendous success under Coach (John) Beilein. They return very good players, a big kid in (Moritz) Wagner, and in the guards, they’ve added a graduate transfer in (Jaaron) Simmons, who I know is a very good player, so it’ll be a tough game against a big-time opponent from the Big Ten, and we’ll certainly need to play well to give ourselves an opportunity to get it done. But, we’re excited to be in the Maui Invitational. It’s a phenomenal tournament and it’ll be a phenomenal experience for our players, for our fans, and we’re looking forward to getting out there.”
