Charlotte, NC -- The Johnson & Wales Men's Basketball Team is currently off for Thanksgiving, but the JWU athletic department is continuing to plan for the 2nd Annual JWU Cup, a tournament between the four campuses of Johnson & Wales University. Charlotte will host the men's tournament this year, while the women's teams will travel to North Miami. This is a unique opportunity for the basketball teams at all four campuses to get together and battle for Wildcat bragging rights.
The 2014 Men's JWU Cup festivities begin on Thursday, December 11, when the three visiting teams come into Charlotte for an opening banquet for the players, coaches, team personnel, and administrators. Tournament play begins on Friday, December 12 with JWU Providence taking on JWU Miami at 5:30 PM and JWU Denver and JWU Charlotte facing off at 7:30 PM. On Saturday, the losing teams from Friday will meet at 1:00 PM in the consolation game, and the winners will meet in the 2014 JWU Cup Championship Game at 3:00 PM. All games will be played in the JWU Charlotte Student Center.
An awards ceremony will immediately follow the championship game where the cup trophy will be awarded, and the All-Tournament Team and MVP will be announced. JWU Charlotte senior co-captain DeQuincey Bennett took home All-Tournament honors in 2013.
