LAS VEGAS -- Two days. Four quality teams. One court.

The Las Vegas Holiday Hoops, which featured Arizona State, Baylor, Gonzaga and Texas A&M, had the look of an NCAA tournament regional (in fact, the Sun Devils and Aggies were half of a regional last season in Trenton, N.J.). And if the field didn't resemble an NCAA tournament weekend, it certainly didn't look like a normal December four-team event.
