PLANO, TEXAS -- BCS Stats Systems has reached an agreement with Breakaway Sprots to to provide its StatMonitr media stats and stat monitor services at the inaugural 2010 Cancun Governor's Cup Tournament in Mexico on December 22-24, 2010. The Governor's Cup which is operated and televised by ESPN Regional Television will feature a field of eight Division-I mens' basketball teams and will represent the first event outside of a U.S.-held territory that BCS Stats will provide services for and the third preseason tournament in 2010 held off the U.S. mainland.

The new tournament will feature 12 games through three days. Each team will compete in one game per day, advancing through a bracket-tournament format. The two teams that remain undefeated will face off in a championship match. Conference USA will serve as the event’s sponsoring conference.

In preparation for the 2010 Cancun Governor’s Cup, a single game was played last season at the Poliforum Benito Juarez, with Virginia Tech defeating Seton Hall 103-94 in overtime in front of a crowd of 2,365. The arena is located on Boulevard Luis Donaldo, a few minutes from the Cancun International Airport and was opened last year as the home of the Pioneros Quintana Roo, the basketball team of the state of Quintana Roo.

The 2010 tournament field will feature Appalachian State, Colorado State, East Tennessee State, Ole Miss, Northeastern, Saint Louis, Southern Miss and Texas State.
