How are events structured?
The city of Portland will simultaneously host two different college basketball events during Thanksgiving week of 2022: the PKI and the Phil Knight Legacy. Each event will include two different brackets – an eight-team men’s bracket and a four-team women’s bracket set up in a tournament-style format. Between the events, a total of 24 teams (16 men’s teams, eight women’s teams) will play 32 games in Portland between Thursday, November 24, and Sunday, November 27, 2022. On Sunday, four separate championships will be awarded: men’s PKI, women’s PKI, men’s Phil Knight Legacy and women’s Phil Knight Legacy.
