St. John's books trip to Hawaii

St. John's is one of eight teams in a star-studded field for the 2015 Maui Invitational.

Kansas, UCLA and Indiana will also participate in the tournament, along with UNLV, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest and Division II-Chaminade, the host school. The tourney will be held from Nov. 23 to Nov. 25, 2015.

"The 2015 tournament promises to be very special. Kansas, St. John's, UCLA and Indiana are four of the most storied programs in the history of college basketball. UNLV, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest are among the most successful programs in the past two decades," said Dave Odom, tournament chairman. "To have these teams join Chaminade in Maui will make for a spectacular week of basketball."

This will be St. John's first appearance in the Maui Invitational, which began in 1984.
