The Phil Knight Invitational has released its brackets.
The 16-team field consisting of all Nike and Jordan teams is split into two eight-team tournaments — the Victory and Motion brackets — so that schools from the same conference will not face each other.
Gonzaga, Portland, and Portland State are the three mid-majors in the field. The Pilots will face North Carolina in the first round of the Victory bracket. Portland State will play Duke and Gonzaga will face Ohio State on opposite ends of the Motion bracket. If all goes according to plan, the Blue Devils and Bulldogs will face each other in the Motion title game on Sunday, Nov. 26.
The entire event will take place in Portland in celebration of Nike founder Phil Knight’s 80th birthday. Games will be divided between the Moda Center and Veterans Memorial Coliseum, beginning on Thanksgiving.
