The 2014 Orlando Classic seems destined for a Kansas vs. Michigan State championship game matchup. Who wouldn’t want to see these two Champions Classic participants get after it on Nov. 30?

The Jayhawks and Spartans are the clear class of a field that also includes Tennessee, Santa Clara, Rhode Island, Rider, Marquette and Georgia Tech. Of those six, only the Volunteers reached last season’s NCAA Tournament, though UT is breaking in a new coach in Donnie Tyndhall. Marquette is also in the new coach category, with former Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski now in charge.
