The Cougars are only the second Colonial Athletic Association team to play in the AdvoCare Invitational (George Mason went 2-1 in 2008). Charleston returns three starters from last year’s 26-8 squad, which captured the CAA regular season and tournament titles and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1999. The Cougars are led by pre-season all-conference honorees forward Jarrell Brantley and guard Grant Riller, an Orlando native. Riller averaged 18.6 points per game last season, while Brantley contributed 17.3 ppg and 7.1 rpg.
