The 2018 AdvoCare Invitational is more than two months away, but MFST will have close ties to the tournament this year. The hosts of the My Fantasy Podcast, Dan Schalk and Brandon Reid will be LIVE this November from Lake Buena Vista, Florida where the tournament is held.

Dan has covered Canisius basketball for the last four years and is excited to watch the Golden Griffins take on last year’s National Champions…

When I received news that Canisius was going to be apart of this Tournament, I have to admit, I was very excited. The Griffs don’t get any national exposure and despite an early exit from the MAAC Conference Tournament last season, this team has the talent to make waves in the NCAA Tourney. An opening round matchup in the AdvoCare Invitational against Villanova will get everyone excited.

Brandon is from Memphis and has seen the very best of times, and suffered through the not-so-great times of Tiger basketball. Under new head coach, former Tiger alum, and NBA All-Star, Penny Hardaway, the Tigers have been roaring back on the national basketball scene.

The opportunity to showcase our NBA level coaching staff, and talented new team, in a big time holiday event like this, is what Tiger basketball was meant to be. The chance to play the defending national champs, and shock the world, makes it a can’t miss event. I have not been this excited about Tiger basketball since the 2008 title game. As a life long Tiger fan, being at this event truly is Christmas come early.
