Duke University and the University of Cincinnati will headline the 2016 Hall-of-Fame Tip-off Classic, according Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. 

The Basketball Hall-of-Fame hosts the annual tournament each November at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut.  

The eight team tournament will feature two four-team divisions, according to the tournament's website. UC, Duke, Rhode Island and Penn State will headline the tournament, Rothstein tweeted.

Those four teams will presumably be in the top tier 'Naismith' division with the other four unreported teams in the 'Springfield' division. 

Matchups have not been determined.

Former winners of the 'Naismith' division are Kentucky (2011), Ohio State (2012), North Carolina (2013) and Providence (2014).
