Notes: The game will pay tribute to Jimmy Valvano and Andrew Moritz. Per the game's official release, this is the 17th year of the Jimmy V Classic, a 2-game tourney that pays tribute to Jim Valvano, who passed away in 1993 from bone cancer. Jimmy V displayed a fighting spirit that serves as an inspira- tion to this day. Former Husky Basketball walk on Andrew Moritz em- bodied that same fighting attitude through his own brave battle with cancer. On Saturday, Nov. 26, Moritz succumbed to his three-year fight with a rare sarcoma -- desmoplastic round cell tumor. Moritz, 33, was a walk-on player from 1996-99 who played on two NCAA tournament teams. He was diagnosed in 2008 with his disease and only given a few months to live. He spent the past three years fighting cancer with the same spirit he showed on the basketball court.
