The brackets and schedule for the 2022 U.S. Virgin Islands Paradise Jam have been released, as announced by the Basketball Travelers Inc. on Tuesday. Arkansas Women’s Basketball, who was selected back in February as one of eight women’s teams, will participate in the 23rd edition of the tournament from Nov. 24-26 held at the University of the Virgin Islands Sports and Fitness Center in St. Thomas. The men’s event will tipoff the Paradise Jam from Nov. 18-21.

The women’s field is split into two, four-team round-robin tournaments, the Island and Reef tournaments. The Hogs will play in the Reef Tournament along with Northern Arizona, Clemson and Kansas State. A champion in each tournament will be crowned following the final game. Arkansas’ schedule is as follows:

  • Thursday, Nov. 24 at 5:45 p.m. vs. Northern Arizona
  • Friday, Nov. 25 at 8 p.m. vs. Clemson
  • Saturday, Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. vs. Kansas State

All times CT

“Early season tournament settings against other postseason caliber teams is a great way for us to prepare for the SEC,” said Head Women’s Basketball Coach Mike Neighbors.

All Paradise Jam games will be streamed on ESPN3. Fans wanting to travel to Saint Thomas to see the Hogs play during Thanksgiving weekend can purchase a travel package that will be available for sell at a later date. For more information leading up to the tournament, visit paradisejam.com.
