The USF men's basketball team is set to play in the eight-team Diamond Head Classic tournament from Dec. 22-25 at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu.
The Dons' first-round game against San Diego State on Dec. 22 will be televised live on ESPNU and will be part of 12 tournament games broadcast on ESPN networks. The third-place and championship games will be televised on ESPN2 on Christmas Day.
"The Diamond Head Classic is an outstanding college basketball tournament and will provide a great opportunity for the University of San Francisco basketball program to measure itself against a quality field," USF athletic director Scott Sidwell said in a release.
Also competing in the Diamond Head Classic are San Diego State, Arizona, Miami, Ole Miss, Indiana State, East Tennessee State and host Hawaii.
Each team will play one game per day in a tournament format until the two undefeated teams square off in the championship game.
The University of Southern California won the inaugural tournament in 2009, followed by Butler in 2010 and Kansas State in 2011.
