Matchups set for Paradise Jam; Okafor to JMU

It was announced today that UConn will face Wake Forest, Marist and Purdue at the Paradise Jam in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The eight-team field has been coming together rather slowly and there is still an eighth team yet to be announced. UConn will be in the bracket with Wake Forest, Marist and Purdue and will play each team in the Nov. 22-24 event. DePaul, South Carolina, Hampton and a team to be named will be in the other bracket. The champions in each bracket will be determined by results in round robin play and the teams will not face the teams in the other bracket.

Former Hopkins star Lauren "Lady" Okafor will be heading to James Madison.

Okafor's mom confirmed the landing spot for Okafor, who played the last two seasons at Providence but decided to transfer.

She will have to sit out next season and will have two years of eligibility.
