The 2017/2018 women’s basketball season might seem like a long time away, but this might prompt some serious interest. Virginia Tech has been tapped as a competitor in the Paradise Jam to start the season. The Paradise Jam is held in the Virgin Islands in November. ICYMI, the Virgin Islands typically have better weather than Blacksburg in November. The women will be split into two groups, and a round robin format will ensue. Virginia Tech has been grouped with Drexel, Butler, and some team from Morgantown. Don’t think for one second that the organizers of the Paradise Jam channeled their inner U.S. Open pairing committee pitting these two rivals together.
The games will be played at the newly renovated Fitness Center at the University of the Virgin Islands campus. They have recently added fiber optic connectivity, so live blogging/tweeting just got that much easier. SBNation may or may not have boots on the ground for this one, but I will humbly offer my services.
