The Final Gotham Classic Team Is Alcorn State


A reader e-mailed me this link, and I wanted to share it with all of you first. This completes the roster of Syracuse home games for the tournament, with the contest against the Braves coming on December 29th. Note that Alcorn, out of the SWAC, was one of the worst teams in Division I last season -- their RPI ranking was 335th out of 344, according to the NCAA's official numbers. Curiously, this is the third exempt event that Alcorn State is in this season, as they're already in the Battle 4 Atlantis and Hoops 4 Hope though they may only use one of them for the scheduling benefit. However, that total may not hold up, as the Braves are currently scheduled to play at Missouri State and at Florida Gulf Coast on the same day.
