The Dayton Flyers will play in the Maui Invitational in 2019, the school announced Tuesday. It will be the program’s first appearance in the Hawaii tournament since 2013 and fourth appearance overall.
Brigham Young, Georgia, Kansas, Michigan State, UCLA, Virginia Tech and host Chaminade complete the field in the 36th Maui Invitational. The games will be played Nov. 25-27 at the Lahaina Civic Center.
Dayton also played in Maui in 2000 and 2003. Dayton is 7-2 in the tournament. It finished third in 2000, won the tournament in 2003 and placed third in 2013. Victories over Gonzaga and California in Maui in 2013 helped the Flyers earn an at-large berth in the 2014 NCAA tournament when it reached the Elite Eight.
Since last playing in Maui, Dayton has played in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, the Advocare Invitational in Orlando, the Wooden Legacy in California and the Charleston Classic in South Carolina. It will play in the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas in November.
