Barclays Center Classic Schedule

The Barclays Center Classic may be one of the newest tournaments in college basketball but it has already become one of the most popular. Eight teams are invited and are guaranteed to play four games with the first round of games being held on campus sites and the winners moving on to compete in the semifinals and finals at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Each year several of the top teams in the country are invited to take part in this one of a kind tournament and college hoops fanatics are eager to get to Barclays Center to see who will be crowned champion. StubHub has tickets to the semifinals and finals at the 2014 Barclays Center Classic so get yours today.

The semifinals will take place at Barclays Center on Friday, November 28th with the finals being held the next day on the 29th. Barclays Center is well known as the home of the NBA's Brooklyn Nets and is a state of the art venue that was built specifically to host big time basketball games. A trip to Barclays Center is well worth your time, but when you can see some of the best college basketball teams in the country battling it out for a tournament championship there is no reason not to go to the fantastic venue. There are few other events in NCAA hoops that assemble a field of quality teams like the ones on hand for the Barclays Center Classic each year.


Barclays Center Classic History

The first Barclays Center Classic was held in 2012 and featured a round-robin style competition among five teams which determined the champion. The Kentucky Wildcats won that year after going 4-0 in the tournament with the Maryland Terrapins finished second with a 3-1 record. The first event was so popular that the field expanded to eight teams who each played four games. The winners of the on-campus games advanced to the semifinals and finals at Barclays Center while the other four teams moved on to a loser's bracket played at a campus site. In 2013 Ole Miss defeated Georgia Tech and Penn State defeated St. John's in the semifinals, with Ole Miss going on to beat Penn State for the championship. The Barclays Center Classic continues to grow in popularity each year and the 2014 tournament should be the biggest yet.


The Teams

The 2014 Barclays Center Classic has announced four of the eight teams who will be participating in the tournament. La Salle, Rutgers, Vanderbilt, and Virginia will be the top teams in the Barclays Center Classic this year. La Salle has a proud history of basketball that includes a National Championship in 1954 and a Sweet Sixteen run in the 2013 NCAA Basketball Tournament. Rutgers is making a move to the Big Ten this year and are looking to make a return to the Final Four for the second time in school history and the first time since 1976. Vanderbilt plays in the difficult SEC where they annually go up against basketball powerhouses like Kentucky and Florida. Virginia represents the ACC, one of the best colleges in all of college basketball, and have been one of the best teams in the country the past few years and would surprise no one if they make a deep run in March. Four more teams have yet to be named for the tournament but the field is already strong and will once again be one of the best college basketball tournaments of the year. Start making plans now to be in Brooklyn in November for one of the biggest events of the college basketball season.


Trivia

Barclays Center opened in September of 2012, just a few months prior to the first ever Barclays Center Classic. The first event ever held at the venue was a Jay-Z concert and the first basketball game at Barclays Center was an NBA preseason game between the Washington Wizards and the Brooklyn Nets.
