On Tuesday, ESPN revealed the brackets to several preseason tournaments and events that will be played in November and December. This comes a day after ESPN released its schedule for their annual 24-hour college basketball marathon. It’s an exciting time for college basketball fans.

With the release of these schedules, the overall landscape of non-conference play starts to take a little more shape. Numerous teams have revealed their entire non-conference schedule, but there are still plenty of teams that haven’t revealed more than a few games. These tournaments help us in determining who’s going to have their hands full early in the season.

Now, only half of the preseason tournament and events have been announced thus far. The rest of them will be revealed Wednesday morning. We will revisit these tournaments later on in our official season preview guide that will be released throughout October. For now, let’s take a look at the tournaments we do know.
