    The CBS Sports Classic, an annual college basketball showcase featuring perennial powers Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio State and UCLA, has been extended for three years through 2026. The marquee event, which began in 2014, is broadcast each year on The CBS Television Network and available to stream live on Paramount+.

    The 2022 CBS Sports Classic will be held on Saturday, Dec. 17 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

    This year’s doubleheader will include Ohio State facing North Carolina at 3:00 PM, ET followed by UCLA taking on Kentucky. This set of matchups was last featured in 2017, when North Carolina defeated Ohio State, 86-72, and UCLA knocked off Kentucky, 83-75.

    This will be the first time that Madison Square Garden hosts the CBS Sports Classic. Throughout the eight-year history of the CBS Sports Classic, the United Center in Chicago (2014, 2018), Barclays Center in Brooklyn (2015), T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas (2016, 2019, 2021), Smoothie King Center in New Orleans (2017) and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland (2020) have hosted the event.

    North Carolina is 5-3 in the CBS Sports Classic, Ohio State is 4-3, Kentucky is 4-4 and UCLA is 2-5.
