Michigan can look forward to being in Paradise next year at Thanksgiving.

The Wolverines will join a packed field and play in the Battle 4 Atlantis next season, Nov. 25-27, in Paradise Island, Bahamas. Along with UM, the tournament will feature Syracuse, Connecticut, Gonzaga, Texas, Washington, Texas A&M and Charlotte.

The tournament features three games in three days, although the pairings haven't been announced.

Michigan will have played at least three of the teams in the past two years. The Wolverines beat Syracuse in the Final Four on the way to the title game in 2013. UM lost to Charlotte in the championship game of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off Classic last season and topped Texas last season in the NCAA Tournament.

The Wolverines also play Syracuse at the Crisler Center on Tuesday in the Big Ten / ACC Challenge.
