If you’re a college hoops fan and are planning a trip to Walt Disney World in November you’re in luck! This fall, you can add a basketball game or two to your vacation, because the Tire Pros Invitational and AdvoCare Invitational will be underway at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

New to Disney, the Tire Pros Invitational will tip off November 17-20 and features Arizona State, Clemson, Davidson, Missouri, Northern Iowa, Tulane, Xavier and Oklahoma, which made it to the Final Four of the 2016 NCAA men’s basketball championship.

For each tournament, the bracket consists of 12 games over three days with each team competing in one game per day, advancing through the bracket. The two teams that remain undefeated throughout will face off in a championship game on the final day of competition.
