Game matchups and start times for the 2019 U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam were released Monday, May 13, 2019. The men’s Paradise Jam, which will be held Nov. 22-25 at the University of the Virgin Islands’ Sports and Fitness Center in St. Thomas, opens up with Valpo Men’s Basketball taking on Grand Canyon at noon CT on Friday, Nov. 22. All games at the 2019 U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam will stream online at FloHoops.com.

 

Valpo opens up tournament play against a Grand Canyon team which went 19-14 overall in 2018-19 and finished at 10-6 in the WAC. Nevada and Fordham are on Valpo’s side of the bracket as well, while Cincinnati, Illinois State, Bowling Green and Western Kentucky sit on the other side of the bracket.
