The Boston College Eagles, Ole Miss Rebels, Richmond Spiders and Wyoming Cowboys will be headlining the 2018 Suncoast Classic, multiple sources have informed FanRag Sports. However, the official matchups, as well as the dates and times, surrounding next year’s event have yet to be determined.

The Eagles should return one of the ACC’s best backcourts in Jerome Robinson and Ky Bowman while the Rebels should also be strong along the perimeter with Breein Tyree, Terence Davis and Devonate Shuler all present. On the other hand, both the Spiders and Cowboys will be looking to build upon 20-win seasons from 2016-17 despite the fact that each program finished in the middle-of-the-pack of their respective conferences.

It is also worth noting that Wyoming will be coming off an 83-59 win over the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, a victory that allowed the Cowboys to claim the CBI Championship in 2016-17.
