Puerto Rico Tip-off moves to Conway’s HTC Center

Due to the devastating impact that Hurricane Maria had on the commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the 2017 Puerto Rico Tip-Off has been relocated to Conway, and the event will now be played at the HTC Center on campus at Coastal Carolina University.

Games, which were originally slated to be played at the Coliseo Municipal Tomas Dones in Fajardo, P.R., will now be played at the HTC Student Recreation and Convocation Center, Nov. 16-19.

“The aftermath of the hurricane has caused an immense hardship to the island, and our thoughts are with the people of Puerto Rico during this difficult time,” said Pete Derzis, ESPN senior vice president of college sports programming and events. “We are hopeful to be able to return next year to Puerto Rico, where our teams have enjoyed the warm hospitality and rich culture of Puerto Rico for nearly a decade.”

The teams participating in this year’s tournament remain the same with Appalachian State, Boise State, Illinois State, Iowa State, South Carolina, Tulsa, UTEP and Western Michigan. South Carolina will face Illinois State in the event’s opening round on Nov. 16 at 11:30 a.m. The full schedule is listed below:
