The Final Fourcast/Best Virginia

Best Virginia is back for their third appearance in The Basketball Tournament, entering the field as the No. 1 seed in the West Virginia regional. They’ll take on Virginia Dream, a first-year team looking to make a statement in their first tournament showing.

So what is The Basketball Tournament?

It’s the winner-take-all $1 million tournament comprised of 64 teams. They’re playing in 8 regionals across last weekend and this, and will have an elite eight next weekend in Dayton.

Is there anything different about it?

  • They use FIBA rules for goaltending, meaning players can knock a ball off the rim.
  • The game is played in four 9-minute periods.
  • They use the Elam Ending, which stops the clock after the first whistle inside of four minutes. From there, a target score is established by taking the leading team’s score and adding 8 points to it. This means every game ends with a bucket.
