June 18, 2014


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- The Indiana State basketball team will compete in the 14th annual Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational this November with a pair of home games inside Hulman Center as well as two contests at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. Tickets to the event are on sale now at the Hulman Center Ticket Office by visiting during normal business hours or by calling 812-237-3737. 


The Sycamores will begin play in the event by hosting Austin Peay on November 22 followed by Brown on November 24. Tip-off times for both of those contests will be announced later in the summer.

The Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational then moves from campus sites to the beautiful Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on November 27-28. Joining Indiana State, Austin Peay and Brown in Vegas will be Illinois, Stephen F. Austin, Prairie View, Baylor and Memphis.

Always one of the top early season tournaments of the college basketball season, the past champions of the Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational reads like a “Who’s Who” of college basketball: Illinois (2005), Kansas (2006 and 2010), North Carolina (2007), Kentucky (2008) and Oklahoma State (2009). In the 2011 title game, UNLV upset #1 North Carolina 90-80. The 2012 tourney was won by Creighton and last year UCLA was the 2013 Champion. 

Each team will play four games in the Invitational – the first two at on-campus sites and the final two rounds at the Orleans Arena November 27-28. Hosting more than 200 events each year, the Orleans Arena is located just west of the Las Vegas strip and was recently named the #1 mid-size arena in the USA by Venues Today magazine. 

Tickets for the final rounds in Las Vegas are available at the Orleans Arena box office (1.888.234.2334 or 702.284.7777) and via the internet at www.orleansarena.com. Indiana State fans may also stop by the Hulman Center Ticket Office or call 812-237-3737 to reserve tickets in the Sycamore fan block.
