ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Three teams that made the NCAA tournament last season headline this year’s field for the Orlando Classic.

Formerly known as the Old Spice Classic, the tournament is again set for Thanksgiving weekend at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World. This year’s field includes 2014 NCAA tourney teams Michigan State, Tennessee and Kansas. Georgia Tech, Marquette, Rhode Island, Rider and Santa Clara make up the remainder of the eight-team field.

The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference will serve as the event’s sponsoring conference for the ninth straight year.
