The format for the 2012 Legends Classic, which has fast become one of the nation's premier early-season college basketball tournaments, features 12 teams from across the nation competing in the fifth annual event with Georgetown, NCAA Sweet 16 participant Indiana, UCLA, and Georgia hosting regional round games from Nov. 11-15. The four hosts will then advance to the Championship Rounds on Nov. 19-20 at Barclays Center, located in the heart of Brooklyn, N.Y., while the remainder of the field will participate in subregionals held at campus sites.
So you are right Jake - 8 other teams - 6 named, 2 still TBD
Jon Wallace is, Jon Wallace is someone that I trust. I trust him with the game, I trust him with the ball in his hands, I trust Jon Wallace. I want people like him around me. That is much more important than the type of basketball player he is. It has turned out that because of the type of person he is, he’s turned into a damn good basketball player.
UCLA's basketball team will be in China this summer. We have good anecdotal evidence that that will help them.
3 things will help them more: 1. Not having Reeves Nelson 2. a doctor for all their injured players 3. a lock on Josh Smith's fridge.
There was an article about Josh Smith in the LA Times a few weeks ago. It sounds as though he may finally have his head out of his rather ample posterior (no guarantees, though). Apparently he's radically altered his diet and lost quite a bit of weight. I believe he's still pushing three bills, though.

I frankly hate UCLA more than any other programin the country....including Syracuse. They've become a "win at all cost" program and they recruit dirty. Their alum has deep pockets and boosters have much too much contact with recruits. That said, they will be very tough to beat.
This is most likely true. I don't see any defensive stoppers on that roster at all.
They should be able to score with just about anybody, though.
That will benefit Gtown whos defenses have been in place pretty early in years past. While the offenses havent been as crisp.
I think Gtown can beat UCLA, but I dont think they can beat Indiana. I see Zeller causing a lot of problems and Gtown wont have a good match up for him down low. But I dont think it will be a blow out, less than a 10 point loss

We will beat both UCLA and Indiana. We have a better team chemistry, better defense, bigger size. Shabbazz got nothin on my homie Otto. Greg will dunk on KA all day err day. What now? Otto will dunk on Zellar's face if we face Indiana. Easy easy.
