GEORGETOWN, CAYMAN ISLANDS – The University of Richmond men's basketball program will be a part of history when it heads to the inaugural Cayman Islands Classic in November.

The Spiders learned their opening round opponent this week when tournament officials released the eight-team bracket. Richmond gets a Nov. 20 date with Conference USA power UAB at 5 p.m.

In the second round, Richmond will get either Buffalo, coming off a recent trip to the NCAA Tournament, or perennial top-25 team Cincinnati.

The other side of the bracket includes Iowa, South Dakota State, Wyoming and Louisiana.

Five of the eight teams in the tournament competed in postseason play last year.
