The Maui Invitational Tournament is an annual early-season college basketball tournament that takes place Thanksgiving Week in Lahaina, Hawaii at the Lahaina Civic Center on the island of Maui. It is hosted by Chaminade University of Honolulu, which participates yearly along with a field of seven NCAA Division I men's basketball teams. EA Sports has served as the title sponsor since 2001. The tournament, broadcast by ESPN, began in 1984. It was inspired by a 1982 upset by Chaminade over Virginia, considered by some to be the greatest upset in college basketball history.
