It’s Feast Week in college basketball, a time when the sport feels like it really gets underway and the week of Thanksgiving is filled with games matching teams across the country in great locations. Carolina always takes part in some form or fashion, and this year they are out in the Bahamas in the annual Battle 4 Atlantis.
These Thanksgiving Tournaments are always tough to plan your day around when you want to watch, as teams are guaranteed to play all three days, but when they play is determined by the result of the other games. The only one set in stone is day one, and then you have about 24 hours to work your way around the next game. At this point, though, your family should understand how meaningful basketball is in your life so I’m sure they’ll understand. Just plan your cooking around it.
To help you out, this post is going to be updated throughout the week. It’ll start by listing all of the possibilities so that you at least have an idea of what to expect, and then based on the results it’ll get narrowed down and updated with the correct team and channel information.
