ESPN Events and the Rose Quarter are excited to unveil the Phil Knight Invitational (PKI), returning to Moda Center. This year’s men’s basketball matchup will feature Brigham Young University (BYU) and the University of Oregon.
Fans can anticipate an excellent game as both teams are coming off an NCAA Tournament appearance, with Oregon advancing to its fourth Sweet 16 in the last five seasons. Both teams are also projected to reach the NCAA Tournament again this season, with ESPN’s latest Bracketology tagging Oregon as a no. 6 seed and BYU a no. 11 seed. The game will air on ESPN.
PKI will continue to honor Nike co-founder and 2012 Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductee Phil Knight and his contributions to college basketball.
