Quick Post: Charleston Classic bracket finalized

The final missing piece to the scheduling puzzle has been put in place.  The Charleston Classic bracket was announced today, and CU has drawn Atlantic-10 power Dayton in the first round.  The Buffs and Flyers will tip-off the tournament at 12:30 on November 15th.  Opening round coverage will be on ESPN3.
Also in the top-half of the bracket, Baylor and Boston College will play for the right to face the winner of the CU/Dayton game.  Murray St, Auburn, Charleston and St. John's reside in the bottom half of the bracket.

Of course the plum in the pudding is the potential second round matchup with Baylor.  There's plenty of bad blood between the Bears and Buffs, and the Tournament game last March did nothing to diffuse the situation.  It's high time that CU finally gets some revenge on those cheating assholes, and November will serve just fine.  Hopefully, CU will slip past Dayton, and get another bite at the Waco apple.
