Mississippi State’s men’s basketball team became one of eight teams invited to participate in the 2015 Puerto Rico Classic.
The Bulldogs will join Butler, Miami, Minnesota, Missouri State, Temple, Texas Tech and Utah at the three-day event held Nov. 19-22 in San Juan next year. The bracket will be announced at a later date.
“You want to take your guys and your program to nice, exotic locations,” said MSU coach Rick Ray. “I think it’s a good cultural experience for our team to go places like that. But it’s also a recruiting tool as well.”
The Bulldogs participated in the Maui Invitational during Ray’s rookie season and the Las Vegas Classic last year. State will compete in the Corpus Christi Classic next week.
