Four of the 10 winningest programs in Division I histo-ry - Kansas, Indiana, UCLA and St. John's - as well as Vanderbilt, Nevada-Las Vegas and Wake Forest will join Chaminade in the 2015 Maui Invitational field.
The Hoosiers and Jayhawks will both be playing in the tournament for the sixth time. Kansas won the 1996 title, and Indiana was the champion in 2002. UCLA has made five appearances, winning the event in 2006. St. John's will be making its tournament debut.
Vanderbilt has played on Maui four times before, and won in 1986 - the third edition of the event, and first with an eight-team field. UNLV has made two trips, with a top finish of third, in 1988.
Wake Forest is also making its first appearance.
"The 2015 tournament promises to be very special. To have these teams join Chaminade in Maui will make for a spectacular week of basketball," said tournament chairman Dave Odom.
The 2014 field was announced last year - the Division I teams will be Arizona, Missouri, Kansas State, Purdue, Brigham Young, Pittsburgh and San Diego State.
ESPN is conducting an online poll in which fans can vote for their favorite Maui Invitational moment.
The choices include a trio of late-game baskets - Jeff Brassow's buzzer-beating tip-in to win the 1993 title for Ken-tucky, Denham Brown's shot that secured Connecticut's 2005 championship and a
3-pointer by Butler's Rotnei Clarke as time ran out in a first-round win in 2012 - as well as the 43-point effort by Adam Morrison of Gonzaga in a 2005 semifinal and Duke claiming its fifth Wayne Duke Trophy in 2011.
The results are to be announced Wednesday.
A familiar face was back in the 50th state Monday - former University of Hawaii athletic director Herman Frazier is now with Syracuse as a deputy athletic director/chief of staff, and attended the Orange's win over Minnesota on Monday.
Frazier took over the role in 2011 and "oversees the daily operation of all facets of Syracuse athletics," according to the school's website.
Frazier was the athletic director at UH from 2002 until his firing in 2008. He then served in the athletic department at Temple.
"I think Joey King is the epitome of what this program is about, his toughness, his fractured jaw, he came in and played his heart out."
