Thursday afternoon the Wooden Legacy was one of two early-season events to announce its field for next season, with traditional powers Arizona and Michigan State being part of the 2015 field.
Joining the Wildcats and Spartans in the field are Boise State, Boston College, Evansville, Providence, Santa Clara and UC Irvine. Of the eight teams in the field three reached the NCAA tournament last season, with Arizona and Michigan State reaching the Elite Eight and Providence dropping an exciting game to North Carolina in the Round of 64.
UC Irvine, which gave Arizona a run for its money Wednesday night, is the preseason favorite to win the Big West and Boise State was picked to finish second in the Mountain West.
The Wooden Legacy will be held November 26, 27 and 29, with the first two days of action being played on the Cal-State Fullerton campus. All four games on November 29 will be played at the Honda Center in Anaheim.
