2016 Directv Wooden Legacy Bracket Announced

Jul. 14, 2016

The 2016 DIRECTV Wooden Legacy – the eight-school, bracketed in-season tournament featuring perennial collegiate basketball powers – will return to Honda Center Thanksgiving weekend.


The opening two rounds of the DIRECTV Wooden Legacy will be played at Titan Gym, on the campus of Cal State Fullerton, on Thursday and Friday, November 24 and 25.  Four games, including the DIRECTV Wooden Legacy Championship, will be played at Honda Center on Sunday, November 27. The field features CSUN, Dayton, Nebraska, New Mexico, Portland, Texas A&M, UCLA and Virginia Tech as participants.

Both Dayton and Texas A&M participated in the 2016 NCAA Championship, with the Aggies advancing to the Sweet 16. Dayton is coached by Archie Miller, the brother of the Arizona head coach Sean Miller, who led the Wildcats to a third-place finish in the 2015 DIRECTV Wooden Legacy.  

All 12 games of the 2016 DIRECTV Wooden Legacy will be televised across ESPN Networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN3). All-session tickets and individual tickets for Championship Sunday will go on sale later this summer.
