The field for the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer has been finalized.

The 16-school field has four regionals.

Here's the breakdown:

-- Duke Regional --

  • Duke
  • Presbyterian
  • Georgia Southern
  • Houston

-- UCLA Regional --

  • UCLA
  • Prairie View A&M
  • Weber State
  • Miami-Ohio

-- Michigan Regional --

  • Michigan
  • Michigan Tech
  • Northeastern

-- Southern Illinois Regional --

  • Southern Illinois
  • California Universty of Pennsylvania
  • UMass
  • Arkansas-Monticello

The first-round and second-round games will be played Nov. 10-13 on the campuses of the four hosts with the most-intriguing early match-up being a possible Southern Illinois-UMass game on Nov. 12. The four regional champions will then advance to New York, where the winner of the SIU Regional will play the winner of the Duke Regional on Nov. 20 while the winner of the UCLA Regional and the winner of the Michigan Regional meet in the other semifinal.

The championship game is Nov. 21 at Madison Square Garden.

Barring upsets, it would pit Duke against UCLA.
