CBS Sports is bringing together four of the nation's most prestigious college basketball teams: Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio State and UCLA, for a new college basketball showcase, the CBS SPORTS CLASSIC. CBS Sports will broadcast a doubleheader in 2014, 2015, and 2016 featuring these four elite programs playing each other once in a round-robin format.
