Washington State to reportedly play in premier basketball tip-off tournament
Washington State will headline the 2023 Hall of Fame Tip-Off at Mohegan Sun, Jon Rothstein reported.
Though there hasn’t been an official announcement, the Cougars will join Mississippi State, Northwestern and Rhode Island at the event in November. There is no timetable on an official announcement, and official matchups and dates are also to be determined. This season’s event featured Maryland, Miami, Providence, and Saint Louis.
The Basketball Hall of Fame hosts the annual event, which is an NCAA exempt men’s basketball tournament sponsored by the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.
Each year, top teams and conferences will compete in the Basketball Hall of Fame’s event showcasing its talents in New England’s only exempt Division I college basketball tournament. The original Tip-Off was held in Springfield for more than 25 years. The format has changed, but the name has remained the same, according to the Hall of Fame.
