About the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic

The Coaches vs. Cancer Classic (www.cvcclassic.com) is one of the most prestigious early-season college basketball tournaments. Twelve teams will compete in the event with four of them serving as regional hosts.

The Coaches vs. Cancer program (www.coachesvscancer.org) is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org) and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (www.nabc.org) that empowers basketball coaches, their teams, and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer. Since 1993 the initiative has raised more than $87 million dollars to fund groundbreaking research, provide up-to-date cancer information, advocate for public health policies and deliver services to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
