    Tickets are expected to go on sale in early September via each school's ticketing department, the venue, and https://AshevilleChampionship.com

    This year's 2022 Asheville Championship will air on the ESPN family of networks on Friday, Nov. 11 (ESPN+) and Sunday, Nov. 13 (ESPNU). Friday's matchups include Harvard vs. Louisiana at 6:00 pm ET and ETSU vs. Elon at 8:30 pm ET.

    Sunday's third place game tips at 2:00 pm ET, followed by the Championship game at 4:30 pm ET.

    "Through the Asheville Championship, we are able to bring early season basketball to the Blue Ridge Mountains where fans are hungry for quality match-ups to kick-off the season," said Tournament Chairman Dave Odom. "This region has long been synonymous with remarkable college basketball, and we are proud to be building a Tournament that capitalizes on that existing passion against such a unique backdrop."

    Look, I get it, but traditionally ETSU is a pretty decent basketball team and Harvard has had some decent years. Elon not so much. All of these teams were bad last year, ETSU had the best RPI of 162.

    But man Asheville is a great town, specifically for craft beer guys. I am going to try to make this trip because it is Asheville.

    Love Asheville. One of my favorite trips I’ve ever taken.

    Still, can’t deny the trend.

    Nope, I agree with you. This is a huge downgrade from last years Asheville Championship that consisted of Minnesota, South Carolina, Western Kentucky and Princeton. That consisted of 2 Top 100 RPI teams and 2 others that were 140 and 154. 2 Teams from big time conferences and 2 teams with rich histories in basketball. This year the best RPI team is ETSU at 162 and the worst is Harvard at 255, Elon was 228 and UL was 192.

    So I went to the website, we get Harvard in the first game of the tournament. 6PM EST November 11th, followed by Elon vs ETSU. If we win we will face the winner at 4:30 on the 13th if we were to lose we would play the loser at 2:00 on the 13th.

    "Where's the basketball arena at?" questioned Boudreaux.

    There is no casino in Ashenville. They have naming rights on the venue....which is questionable at best..
