The Maui Invitational is known for giving some lesser-known schools the chance to take on several of college basketball's elite teams. The 2012 version won't be any different.

Duke was crowned tournament champion in 2011 after a 68-61 win over Kansas, marking the Blue Devils' fifth win in 20 years. Prior years saw Connecticut, Gonzaga and North Carolina come away victorious in the championship game.

The format includes three rounds of play. The first two rounds will be held on the mainland, with the Championship Round being contested at the Lahaina Civic Center in Honolulu, HI.
