Several of the NCAA’s top men’s basketball teams will come together over Thanksgiving weekend at the Phil Knight Invitational in Portland, Oregon to face off in an eight-team tournament.
The No. 1 UNC Tar Heels will be there, as will the quickly-rising No. 12 Michigan State Spartans. Villanova and No. 18 Alabama join the field, along with No. 20 UConn, Oregon, Iowa State, and Portland. This is just the third iteration of the event, which was first held in 2017.
This is a single-elimination tournament, and losing teams will continue to play each other via consolation brackets for third-to-eighth place. It begins on Thanksgiving Day and runs through Sunday, Nov. 27. Here’s all the information you need on how to watch:
