No. 20: Gulf Coast Showcase (Bracket)
Dates and Location: November 25-27 in Estero, Fla.
If you are hopelessly addicted to finding a sleeper team for this year's NCAA tournament, you might enjoy the potential semifinal pairing between San Diego and Louisiana Tech. However, there won't be a single household name involved in this one.
No. 19: Las Vegas Classic (Schedule)
Dates and Location: December 22-23 in Las Vegas, Nev.
There's a chance that this tournament could get more interesting over the course of the next month, but UNLV's 21-point loss at home last week against UC Santa Barbara has removed any luster for the time being.
Even if the Rebels get back on track, it's tough to imagine people getting excited about a championship game two days before Christmas between UNLV and South Florida.
No. 18: Paradise Jam (Bracket)
Dates and Location: November 22-25 in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands
If this tournament plays out properly, the best-case scenario is a late-night championship game between Maryland and Providence.
Even if that wasn't being played at the same time as a Monday Night Football game, it wouldn't generate much buzz.
No. 17: Barclays Center Classic (Schedule)
Dates and Location: November 29-30 in Brooklyn, N.Y.
This tournament gets no points, but it's way more interesting than the Gulf Coast Showcase.
Georgia Tech, Ole Miss and St. John's are each expected to finish right in the middle of the standings in their respective major conferences. This is one of those tournaments that might not be highly anticipated but could have huge retrospective implications when we're trying to figure out the bubble in March.
No. 16: Corpus Christi Challenge (Bracket)
Dates and Location: November 29-30 in Corpus Christi, Texas
With Virginia falling out of the rankings after last week's loss to VCU, this tournament is a bit lower on the list than it probably should be.
The Cavaliers drew Southern Methodist in the semifinals—a task that isn't nearly as easy as it would have been in recent years. Win or lose, they'll have to face either Missouri State or Texas A&M the following night.
Virginia might not be ranked anymore, but a 2-0 record in Corpus Christi would probably get it back into the Top 25.
