The 2K Sports Classic is already underway, although the all-important championship rounds won’t take place until later in November.

This wide-reaching event is for a great cause, as each game will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Fortunately, plenty of top teams are participating in the tournament, and a number of solid matchups are on tap over the next week or so.

Let’s take a look at which teams are involved, the complete schedule of contests, a bracket for the championship rounds and more.

Predicted Winner: Indiana

DAYTON, OH - MARCH 24:  Head coach Tom Crean of the Indiana Hoosiers talks to Christian Watford #2 late in the game against the Temple Owls during the third round of the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at UD Arena on March 24, 2013 in Dayton, Ohio.

The Hoosiers are a fringe Top 25 team this year, receiving votes in the AP poll while getting a generous No. 23 ranking in the USA Today poll.

However, winning the 2K Sports Classic would put them on the map and set the tone for the upcoming campaign, so expect head coach Tom Crean to have his boys prepared to take this one.

While the loss of stars Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller to the NBA draft severely hurts Indiana’s chances of success in 2013-14, the squad still features a number of solid contributors.

Sophomore forward Jeremy Hollowell is expected to take on a much bigger role, while freshman Troy Williams joins him in the frontcourt and should make a great impact this season.

Noah Vonleh is another young phenom who should be able to use his 6’10”, 240-pound frame to dominate the competition and control the paint.

There is a solid core here, and it would be surprising if IU had much trouble making a run through this tourney up until the finals.

UConn poses the biggest threat in this tourney, as the Huskies are ranked No. 19 in the AP poll. If both teams are able to navigate through to the last contest, expect it to be a great one.

Predicted Final Score: Indiana 72 – Uconn 70
