CBS Announces New College Basketball Showcase CBS SPORTS CLASSIC

CBS Sports is bringing together four of the nation's most prestigious college basketball teams: Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio State and UCLA, for a new college basketball showcase, the CBS SPORTS CLASSIC. CBS Sports will broadcast a doubleheader in 2014, 2015, and 2016 featuring these four elite programs playing each other once in a round-robin format.

The event debuts at the United Center in Chicago, Ill. on Dec. 20, 2014. North Carolina will take on Ohio State at 1:00 PM, ET, followed by UCLA vs. Kentucky at 3:30 PM, ET.

The CBS SPORTS CLASSIC moves to Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on December 19, 2015, and then travels to Las Vegas, Nev. in December 2016. CBS Sports retains the exclusive distribution and marketing rights to the event. KemperLesnik, a sports marketing agency, will manage the event's operations.

These four schools have combined to win 25 National Championships and are among the winningest college basketball programs of all-time.

"We are excited to bring these powerhouse programs together for a tremendous early season showcase," said Dan Weinberg, Senior Vice President, Programming, CBS Sports. "From its debut next season, the CBS Sports Classic will be a marquee event, adding to our already deep college basketball schedule."

In addition, CBS Sports will stream the games exclusively on CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android. For more information about the CBS Sports Classic, go to http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/cbs-sports-classic.
