Kansas, Indiana, UCLA head Maui Invitational

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Kansas will open the 2015 Maui Invitational against Chaminade, the Division II host school known for some of college basketball's biggest upsets.

The other game on that side of the bracket, which was released Tuesday, has two big-name programs, UCLA and UNLV.

Indiana faces Wake Forest on the other side along with St. John's meeting Vanderbilt.

The tournament starts Nov. 23 at the Lahaina Civic Center with the championship game on Nov. 25. All the games will be televised on one of the ESPN networks.

Half the field has left Maui with the Wayne Duke Championship Trophy: Vanderbilt, 1986; Kansas, 1996; Indiana, 2002; and UCLA, 2006. St. John's and Wake Forest are making their first appearance in the tournament, which is sponsored by Maui Jim.

Along with the games played on Maui, four regional teams will participate in the tournament at campus sites from Nov. 13-16: Northern Colorado, Cal Poly, Austin Peay and UMBC. The four mainland teams will participate in regional games at Northern Colorado Nov. 21-22.

Arizona beat San Diego State in last year's title game.
