Before the College of Charleston Cougars took the court at TD Arena this season, the second annual DIRECTV Charleston Classic brought premier college hoops to the Holy City. The field — which included Georgia Tech, LSU, St. Joseph's, Seton Hall, Tulsa, VCU, Western Kentucky, and the ultimate winner, Northwestern — competed in Charleston on a November weekend. Event organizers from ESPN cited the appeal of the city itself as a popular destination, plus the great facilities at the college as reasons for their choice to host the tournament here in its second year.
