The inaugural Field of 68 Tip-Off will take place at the Eleanor R. Baldwin Arena from Thursday, November 30th to Saturday, December 2nd.

The Field of 68 Tip-Off is a round-robin tournament between these three men's basketball teams: the Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Owls, the Liberty University Flames, and the College of Charleston Cougars. The purpose of this tournament is to give these three mid-major teams a chance to obtain a higher seeding if they qualify for the NCAA Tournament.

This tournament will last for three years. This year's tourney will be played on the home court of FAU. In 2024, the tournament will be played at Charleston. In 2025, the Tip-Off will be played at Liberty.

FAU (5-1) did have a stumble earlier this season against Bryant (they didn't lose to Kobe Bryant, they lost to Bryant University), but they bounced back with a victory over #12 Texas A&M. The Owls are currently ranked #13 in the Top 25.

Liberty is currently undefeated at 6-0 with wins so far over solid mid-major programs like Furman, Wichita State, and Vermont. If Liberty stays undefeated this weekend, then Liberty could end up in the Top 25 along with FAU.

Charleston endured a three-game losing streak, but they are now 3-3 after a good win against Kent State. This year's team is looking to find the spark that led the Cougars to 31 wins last season.
