The Phil Knight Invitational and Phil Knight Legacy non-conference tournaments have expanded to include a women’s bracket and will be featured on ESPN’s Feast Week.
“We are honored to bring together some of the best men’s and women’s college basketball teams in tribute to Phil Knight and his lasting impact on the sport,” said Clint Overby, vice president, ESPN Events.
The 2022 Phil Knight Invitational, owned and operated by ESPN, will feature Iowa State, Michigan State, North Carolina and Oregon, while the 2022 Phil Knight Legacy, hosted by Rip City Management, will include Duke, Iowa, Oregon State and UConn.
“Having the best college basketball teams in the world gather in Portland to celebrate Phil Knight’s continued legacy is a great opportunity for our city,” Rose Quarter senior vice president Chris Oxley said.
The teams will play two games each in the bracket-style events kicking off on Nov. 24-27, 2022, set at the University of Portland’s Chiles Center, Rose Quarter’s Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
