NEW YORK (AP) -Syracuse, North Carolina, California and Ohio State will be in the championship round of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic, to be played Nov. 19-20 at Madison Square Garden.
The rest of the 12-team field will be announced later.
The four regionals hosts announced Thursday will play two games at home and then automatically advance to New York for the semifinals, regardless of the regional results.
The other participants will automatically advance to play a round-robin series at one of two other sub-regional sites, so every team will be guaranteed four games.
The four host schools have combined for seven NCAA championships and 109 appearances in the NCAA tournament.
Duke beat Michigan 71-56 in the tournament's 2008 championship game.
