2K Sports Classic Schedule
Some of the best teams in college basketball will hit the court this fall to take part
in one of the most exciting hoops tournaments around, the 2K Sports Classic. The 2K Sports Classic is not only a great display
of top-notch basketball, but it also raises money for the Wounded Warrior Project each year, giving our nation's finest a
boost after their trials and tribulations in active duty. This 12-team tournament is played on an annual basis, and the final
two rounds of competition take place at the most famous basketball arena in the world, Madison Square Garden in New York,
NY. This year's semifinals are set to tip off on November 20th and should feature four quality teams that have shown that
they're looking strong in 2014-15. The 2K Sports Classic final will be played the following day, on November 21st, when two
teams compete for the right to hoist the trophy at the end of this exciting event. Some of the top teams competing in this'
year's tournament include the Iowa Hawkeyes, California Golden Bears, Texas Longhorns and Syracuse Orange. But don't sleep
on the rest of the field just because these four teams are the heavyweights. That's what is so great about the tournament
setting, that it only takes one game for an underdog to defeat a juggernaut and pull off the upset.
Last year the Connecticut
Huskies took down the Indiana Hoosiers by just one points in the 2K Sports Classic final. UConn would build on that momentum
as the season progressed, and they eventually ran the table in the NCAA Tournament in the spring to become the 2013-14 College
Basketball National Champions. That shows just how important momentum can be, and this year another team will be looking to
create some momentum by winning the trophy at this event. This is sure to be some of the best college basketball that you've
ever seen played, so why not see it unfold in person in the best hoops arena in the world? Make sure to check the schedule
and see what games you'd like to attend.
