The DirecTV Classic was an 8 team college basketball tournament held during Thanksgiving week at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The tournament began in 2007, and was owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television. Games were televised on ESPN2 and ESPNU. Until 2012, it was known as the "76 Classic"; ConocoPhillips's 76 chain owned the naming rights to the tournament. DIRECTV sponsored the 2012 tournament.[1]

In 2013, the event merged with the John R. Wooden Classic to form a new event, the Wooden Legacy.
