The Big Four Tournament was an annual college basketball tournament played from 1971 to 1981 in Greensboro, North Carolina.[1] The field consisted of the "Big Four" North Carolina schools: NC State Wolfpack, Duke Blue Devils, North Carolina Tar Heels, and Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The four previously participated in the Dixie Classic from 1949-1960.

The tournament consisted of two rounds. Each team would play one other team. The two winners then played for the championship and the two losers would played for third place.

The tournament came to an end in 1981.
