This article is about the tournament begun in 2012. For the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic of 1995-2011, see 2K Sports Classic.

The Coaches Vs. Cancer Classic is an annual college basketball tournament event benefiting cancer research which began in 2012. The event is held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and televised by truTV.[1] The tournament replaced the previous Coaches vs. Cancer Classic tournament of 1995-2011, which was renamed the 2K Sports Classic in 2012 when it became a charitable event for the Wounded Warrior Project.

The tournament features 12 schools, with four host schools playing two games on campus and advancing to the Championship Rounds held at the Barclays Center. The remainder of the field participates in a round-robin series at one of the two sub-host sites.

The Florida State Seminoles won the inaugural Coaches vs. Cancer Classic in 2012 by defeating the St. Joseph's Hawks 73-66.
