The Basketball Tournament schedule 2022: Times, TV channels, live streams & more to watch every game

The Basketball Tournament is back!

The ninth-annual high-stakes tournament is set to make its return on July 16th.

The Basketball Tournament is a 64-team, single-elimination tournament with action-packed hoops from tip-off until the game-winning shot. The Basketball Tournament uses an Elam Ending — which the NBA adopted from TBT for its All-Star Game — to assure that every contest ends on a game-winning bucket.

Teams are packed with former NBA players and college stars, all competing to win $1 million in the winner-take-all tournament.

For the full TBT schedule and how to watch each game, we have you covered below.
