If you’re looking for some college hoops over a busy holiday weekend of sports, the Diamond Head Classic has you covered with games starting on Thursday afternoon from Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu. The Washington State Cougars are the only power conference team in the field, but it doesn’t feature any programs currently ranked inside the top 25. However, if you need some Rick Pitino as a part of your Christmas, this is the tournament for you.

This is a single-elimination tournament, and losing teams will continue to play each other via consolation brackets for third-to-eighth place. It begins on Thursday, December 22, and runs through Sunday, December 25, with an off-day for Christmas Eve on December 24. Here’s all the information you need on how to watch:
