The Puerto Rico Tip-Off is preseason college basketball tournament owned and operated by ESPN Regional Television that takes place in late November of each year, usually the week before Thanksgiving.

The tournament began in 2007. From 2007 to 2011, it was held in José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In 2012, it took place in Coliseo Rubén Rodríguez in n Bayamón, Puerto Rico.[1] From 2013 to 2015, Roberto Clemente Coliseum in San Juan hosted it.

In 2016, plans to hold the tournament at Roberto Clemente Coliseum were scrapped due to a Zika virus outbreak in Puerto Rico, and it was held instead at HP Field House at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida,[2] temporarily renamed the Tire Pros Invitational for 2016.[3] Plans called for the tournament to return to Puerto Rico in 2017 and take place at the Coliseo Tomás Dones in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, but widespread damage in Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria in September 2017 caused the 2017 edition of the tournament to be moved as well, to the HTC Center on the campus of Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina.[4][5]
