The CBS Sports Classic is an annual American college basketball event that began in 2014.

Four teams are participating - Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio State, and UCLA. Each team has played one game each year, as a double-header - that is, both games played on the same day - so that they played a round-robin tournament over the first three years.[1]

On December 13, 2016, The CBS Sports Classic was renewed for three more years.[2]
