In its tenth year, the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic has become a highly-anticipated holiday tradition for college basketball fans. This year’s field has three teams who advanced to the postseason last year. Joining host Hawai‘i in the 2018 field are Bucknell, Charlotte, Colorado, Indiana State, Rhode Island, TCU and UNLV.

The first of 12 tournament games will tip off on Saturday, Dec. 22 and will culminate on Dec. 25 with the championship game. December 22 will be a full slate of ESPN events as the Hawai‘i Bowl coincides with the first day of the tournament. Host Hawai‘i will take on UNLV at noon in the first round of the tournament, instead of its customary opening-evening tipoff. The complete bracket can be found here.
