Below is the release on the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament. Iowa will face Xavier in the first round and if they win that they will likely play Tennessee, who will be a borderline Top 25 team to start the year.

With LeBron James’ days of playing for Team USA likely close to finished, maybe Nathaniel Mills should enlist.
