The 2012 edition of the Paradise Jam basketball tournament at the University of the Virgin Islands will again include a game featuring the UVI Buccaneer men's squad playing their LAI league opponent Universidad Metropolitana (UMET). The game, slated for 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17, will also feature appearances by the UVI Dance Squad and Cheerleading Team. Members of the University community - students, faculty and staff - are encouraged to come out and support their team and to wear blue. The Bucs are looking to extend their unbeaten record in Paradise Jam action.
This year's tournament men's division games run from Nov. 16 through 19. The women play from Nov. 22 to 24. Admission for Virgin Islands residents is only $15, while Virgin Islands students - including UVI students - and children is just $5. Tickets are available at the UVI Bookstore and Fat Turtle.
This year's top tournament games will be televised on CBS television. The UVI community should look out for a new commercial slated to be aired during the CBS coverage.
