A new college basketball tournament called the Wooden Legacy will feature 10 schools, including Marquette and Miami playing Nov. 28-Dec. 1 at two sites in Orange County.
The event announced Tuesday combines the John R. Wooden Classic doubleheader and the Anaheim Classic, an eight-team bracketed event that had been played for six years over Thanksgiving weekend.
This year's Wooden Legacy field is: Arizona State, Cal State Fullerton, College of Charleston, Creighton, George Washington, Marquette, Miami and San Diego State.
The opening two rounds will be played at Titan Gym on the Fullerton campus on Nov. 29-30. The event then moves to Honda Center in Anaheim with four placement games. The title game will be played on Dec. 1. The ESPN networks will air all 12 games.
