Ducks To Face Memphis In PDX For Inaugural Phil Knight Invitational

Two years after the PK80 Invitational brought an elite 16-team field to Portland for an early season college basketball showcase, the event returns for a three-year run beginning later this year with the Phil Knight Invitational, a four-team field that includes Oregon.

The Ducks will face Memphis, and Oklahoma will play Oregon State, in the Moda Center on Nov. 12, kicking off the 2019-20 season. The event is being promoted by ESPN Events, in conjunction with Rip City Management and the Rose Quarter.

"I am very happy to be part of a new tradition of early season college basketball matchups with the PKI," Knight said.
