This article is about the tournament held from 2012 to 2014. For the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic of 1995-2011, see 2K Sports Classic.

The Coaches Vs. Cancer Classic was an annual college basketball tournament event benefiting cancer research held from 2012 to 2014. The event was held at the Barclays Center in New York City, 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 featured 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 participated 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. The tournament was held again in 2013 and 2014, but then was quietly discontinued.
