2019 Maui Invitational: Bracket, schedule, scores

Michigan State and Duke stay atop Power 36 rankings

The 2019 Maui Invitational concluded on Wednesday,  Nov. 27. Below, find the bracket, schedule and scores from the tournament.

No. 4 Kansas defeated Dayton in what may have been the game of the college basketball season, 90-84, in overtime to win the title. Senior center Udoka Azubuike scored a career-high 29 points for the Jayhawks, while Devon Dotson had 31. The Flyers may have lost, but they look like a Final Four-caliber team in the season's early stage.

Last year, Gonzaga beat Duke in the final to win the Maui for the second time. The Bulldogs previously won the Maui in 2009.

2019 Maui Invitational: Champions, runners-up, scores

Duke has the most Maui titles, winning the event five times: 1992, 1997, 2001, 2007 and 2011. The Blue Devils lost to Gonzaga in the 2018 finals.

Duke was one of two programs to be undefeated in the tournament. Going into the 2018 event, the Blue Devils were 16-0. Syracuse is 10-0. But the loss to Gonzaga ended the perfect run.

DII Chaminade had been in every edition of the Maui Invitational until 2018. The Silverswords played in a "mainland bracket" in 2018 but will be in the Maui bracket in 2019 and in odd-numbered years going forward. Chaminade will play in a mainland bracket in even-numbered years. In 2017, Chaminade upset California 96-72. Here is the complete history of Chaminade in the event.
