Back for its second year, the 76 Classic brings eight college basketball teams together for a 12-game, bracketed tournament at the Anaheim Convention Center. The top pick this year seems to be the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, as they have the largest number of returning talent—those cocky punks. But with high-pressure games comes high potential for upsets. With the absence of any NBA teams in Orange County—at least for now (we’re crossing our fingers for the establishment of the San Clemente Impeachers)—this is as close as we’re gonna get for a while. www.76classic.com.
