So what is The Basketball Tournament?
It’s the winner-take-all $2 million tournament comprised of 64 teams. They’re playing in 8 regionals across last weekend and this and will have an elite 8 next week in Chicago.
- They use FIBA rules for goaltending (can knock a ball off the rim).
- Four 9-minute periods.
- They use the Elam Ending, which stops the clock after the first whistle inside of four minutes. From there the team who reaches the leading team’s score + 8 wins the game.
