Paradise Jam bracket for BC men's basketball

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The bracket for the Paradise Jam that the BC hoop team will be playing in this November in the Virgin Islands. BC gets a tricky matchup with George Mason in the first round. The winner of that game gets the winner of Belmont and Tarleton State. The full schedule:

Drake vs. Buffalo
Wyoming vs Howard
Belmont vs Tarleton State
BC vs George Mason

Based off of those matchups, it would appear that the teams were seeded:

1) Belmont
2) Wyoming
3) Drake
4) BC
5) George Mason
6) Buffalo
7) Howard
8) Tarleton State

Tarleton State was a replacement for Weber State, a solid mid-major, who originally committed to the field. Losing to Mason and having the final two games in the tourney be useless matchups with Tarleton and Howard would be awful.
