What is the structure of the tournament?
The tournament consists of two separate brackets running simultaneously all three days. Teams will remain in the same bracket for the duration of the tournament. The tournament will be played in both the Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Games will be scheduled for Thursday, November 23, 2017, Friday, November 24, 2017, and Sunday, November 26, 2017.
Each day is split into 2 sessions. Each session consists of 2 games each day in each building, therefore there are 6 sessions for each building for a total of 12 sessions (24 games total). Every team will play one game each day of the tournament for a total of 3 games.
Every team will play one game in each building over the first 2 days. For example, if a team played in Moda Center on Thursday, they will automatically play in Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Friday (and vice versa). The location of their game Sunday will be determined by the outcome of their first 2 games.
