The 2012 Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
The eight-team, two-day tournament was played as the Tip-Off Classic between 1979 and 2005 at the Springfield Civic Center/MassMutual Center.  The event will feature all eight games broadcast live on ESPN networks, one on ESPNU, and the remaining seven on ESPN3.  It is the only exempt NCAA Division I college basketball tournament in New England, where teams receive exempted status for scheduling.

The teams will include Massachusetts, Notre Dame, Florida State. Providence, United States Naval Academy, Northeastern, Manhattan, and Binghamton.

The 9,323 seat Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut opened in 2001, and rivals TD Garden for the biggest concert tours in New England each year.  The arena has won many awards, and is ranked 3rd in the U.S. by Billboard Magazine.
