The 2016 CBE Classic features Kansas making its quadrennial visit to the event in Kansas City. The Jayhawks will undoubtedly be favored both in their semifinal against UAB and in their second game against either NIT champ GW or Georgia.
Kansas will be the heavy favorite in an event played in the Jayhawks backyard. UAB will attempt to top KU in game one, while either Georgia or NIT champion George Washington awaits Bill Self's team on night two.

Dayton, Texas A&M, and locals UCLA anchor this Thanksgiving's DIRECTV Wooden Legacy, with Virginia Tech, Nebraska, and New Mexico also poised to win a game or two. Plus, 2009 Anaheim Classic finalist Portland and Big West Conference rep CSUN will look to surprise.
UCLA will play in an Orange County exempt event for the first time since 2009. While the Bruins hope this experience is a better one, Dayton, Texas A&M, and Virginia Tech will aim to spoil the local fans' fun.

Utah, Stephen F. Austin, Tulsa, and host Hawai'i are the four 2016 NCAA squads in this season's Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic field, but San Diego State might be the quartet's strongest challenger for the title. Illinois State, San Francisco, and Southern Mississippi round out the field of eight.
This season's Christmas weekend event features four teams from last season's NCAA Tournament, all of whom will be looking to pick up a quality win or two right before the dawn of conference season.

Three 2016 NCAA Tournament teams, Iowa, Providence, and Virginia will join Tubby Smith's new charges, Memphis, for the third Emerald Coast Classic. The event should be an excellent test for the quartet.
While Memphis will be breaking in a new head coach, 2016 NCAA teams Iowa, Providence, and Virginia will all travel to the Florida Panhandle looking to pass a pair of early tests with retooled rosters.

We didn't know it at the time, but 2015's NIT Season Tip-Off featured the team that would end up cutting down the nets in Houston. This November, Florida State, Illinois, Temple, and West Virginia will aim to follow in Villanova's footsteps by winning two games at the Barclays Center.
Last season, Villanova won this tournament—played in Brooklyn for the first time—months before claiming the National Title. FSU, Illinois, Temple, and West Virginia will aim to replicate the Wildcats' success in the 2016-17 season.

Up today is my "home" tournament, the AdvoCare Invitational, which I will definitely be attending over Thanksgiving weekend. That's because my alma mater's squad, Florida, will make its first appearance the ESPN Wide World of Sports. Two-time champion Gonzaga will be a slight favorite to claim a third crown, though the Gators, Miami, Iowa State, and Seton Hall are the most likely teams to stop them. Indiana State, Stanford, and Quinnipiac round out the field of eight.
Gonzaga has brought the trophy back to Spokane after its two previous trips to Walt Disney World. To do so for the third time, the Bulldogs will likely have to get past a pair of teams who will have home court advantage.
