2016 Lone Star Showcase

Four of the nation’s top men’s mid-major programs will descend upon the heart of Texas this Thanksgiving as the second annual Lone Star Showcase is held at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park, Monday, November 21 – Wednesday, November 23, 2016.

Two defending conference champions and top-50 RPI teams headline the field – Little Rock, one of last year’s Cinderellas of the NCAA Tournament, and St. Bonaventure. Little Rock finished with a school-record 30 wins and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament while the Bonnies earned a share of the Atlantic 10 regular season title. Central Michigan, one year removed from a Mid-American regular crown, and Pepperdine round out the field.
