The CBE Hall of Fame Classic (formerly known has the College Basketball Experience Classic) named after the College Basketball Experience is an annual season-opening college basketball tournament founded in 2001. The tournament is currently held in mid-November. There are twelve teams invited, each representing a different athletic conference. The initial two rounds are played at regional sites on two different days hosted by participating team. The regional hosts automatically advance championship round in Kansas City, Missouri, with the games played at the Sprint Center. The championship round takes place one week after the initial round. Teams not hosting advance to sub regional rounds where they will play three games. In 2006, the event was renamed the College Basketball Experience Classic (CBE) after the college basketball fan interactive facility. Before the 2007 tournament, the final rounds were held at Municipal Auditorium, except for one year at Kemper Arena in 2001. The event is organized by the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) and produced by Blue Ridge Sports & Entertainment, Inc.
