The 2014 Puerto Rico Tip-Off bracket features four noteworthy programs in defending national champion Connecticut, surprise Elite 8 participant Dayton, New Mexico and West Virginia.

The Huskies are the favorite to win the American Athletic Conference, but they’re only ranked 17th in the preseason AP Top 25 poll. Though it would appear the Huskies aren’t getting respect for their accomplishment, do know they’ll be without Shabazz Napier and DeAndre Daniels, who now are playing pro ball.

The tournament kicks off Nov. 20 and ends Nov. 23.
