Semifinals set for CBE Classic in Kansas City

Missouri will face Notre Dame and California will Georgia in the

semifinals of the CBE Classic.

The 12-team event will culminate with the semifinals at the

Sprint Center on Nov. 21 with the championship game in Nov. 22.

The early round matchups will be announced at a later date.

The event is named after the College Basketball Experience, an

interactive fan facility that features the National Collegiate

Basketball Hall of Fame. The tournament, in partnership with the

National Association of Basketball Coaches, started in 2001 as the

Guardians Classic.

Last year, Duke beat Kansas State 82-68 in the final between

teams ranked first and fourth in the nation.
