In the huge number of Thanksgiving activities one of the tournament is the Maui Invitational Tournament.
This event is an annual early-season college basketball tournament hosted by Chaminade University of Honolulu, which participates yearly along with a field of seven NCAA Division I men’s basketball teams.
Maui Invitational Basketball Tournament takes place in Thanksgiving Week and the venue is in Lahaina, Hawaii at the Lahaina Civic Center on the island of Maui. EA Sports has served as the title sponsor since 2001.
The tournament, broadcast by ESPN, began in 1984. It was inspired by a 1982 upset by Chaminade over Virginia, considered by some to be the greatest upset in college basketball history.
Of the eight teams which play in the Maui Invitational, generally there is one from each of the six major conferences (the Pac-12, Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, ACC, and the SEC), one from another conference such as Conference USA, the Missouri Valley Conference or the Atlantic 10, and Chaminade. Beginning with the 2011 tournament, the field will include four additional mainland teams that will play the Maui-bound teams at home.
