UPDATE: The full B4A bracket has been released and, yep, if we both win (or lose), Syracuse will have a shot at UConn.
So long as Syracuse keeps winning, all of their games will be televised on ESPN. Lose, however, and they'll end up on something called AXS TV, which is available on many satellite and cable services.
ORIGINAL: The Syracuse Orange have a lot of intriguing potential match-ups awaiting them in the Battle 4 Atlantis this season. First, however, they'll have to take care of business against the Charlotte 49ers. The first round games that take place on November 25 have been announced per Jon Rothstein.
Gonzaga/Washington, Texas/Texas A&M, UConn/Michigan, Syracuse/Charlotte are 1st round matchups in the 2015 Battle 4 Atlantis, per release.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) August 6, 2015
My guess, with absolutely no factual basis to back this up, is that the winner of the Syracuse/Charlotte game will be lined up against the winner of the UConn/Michigan game. The event organizers would be stupid not to try and make Syracuse vs. UConn happen, or at least a Final Four rematch between the Orange and the Wolverines.
Interesting that they went ahead and matched up Gonzaga vs. Washington and Texas vs. Texas A&M right away but not Syracuse and UConn. Guess they have high hopes we'll figure it out.
The 49ers are coming off of a 14-18 campaign that ended with head coach Alan Major leaving the program following multiple leaves of absence. Longtime NBA player Mark Price took over as head coach following stints as an NBA assistant.
