“Early-season tournaments against other post-season caliber teams are a great way for us to prepare for the SEC,” said Mike Neighbors, head coach of women’s basketball.

All Paradise Jam matches will be broadcast on ESPN3. Fans who wish to travel to St. Thomas to see the Hogs play over Thanksgiving weekend can purchase a travel package which will be available for sale at a later date. For more pre-tournament information, visit paradisejam.com.
