In 2023, Intersport and The Greenbrier entered into a long-term partnership to bring major college basketball to the mountain resort destination. Radford and Marshall met in a standalone contest on Nov. 10 in front of a sold-out crowd of more than 1,000 fans at Colonial Hall at the famed resort.

Wisconsin a year ago advanced to the Big Ten Tournament title game and was a No. 5 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

UCF will be looking for its third straight early season tournament championship, having won championships in Jacksonville (2023) and the Bahamas (2022).

Pitt won 22 games last season, winning 11 of its final 14 games. The Panthers have posted back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time since 2013 and 2014.

The Tigers will be entering their third season under Matt McMahon after returning to postseason play in the NIT. LSU has won two games each of the last two years in early season tournaments at the Cayman Islands (2022) and Charleston (2023). LSU has already signed three top 65 recruits for the 2024-25 season to go with a strong group from the transfer portal.
