Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about this year's Las Vegas Invitational basketball tournament. If you have any additional questions that are not answered below (or elsewhere on this website), please send your questions to .

Q: How can I add a player to my roster?
A: The deadline to add players to your roster has now passed.

Q: Can our team move down?
A: In most cases, the team that wins the championship in each division automatically moves up one division. In some cases it could be more than one division. The team that gets double eliminated (Loses both games without winning a game) by the most amount of points gets to move down unless that team requests to stay in that division. The one exception to this policy is if a team gets double eliminated two years in a row but in each year it is not by the most amount of points. In this case, the team gets priority in moving down.

Q: Can our team move up even though we did not win our division?
A: In most cases, any team wishing to move up may do so as long as space permits.

Q: If my team is turning in ads, do I need to turn in an entry fee?
A: No, just turn in your roster along with a note saying your team intends to turn in ads.
