Four college basketball teams will take part in the 75 anniversary commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor with a two-day, four-game event that will take place at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Pearl Harbor, Hawai’i.

The games will be played in Bloch Arena, which survived the attacks on Dec. 7th, 1941, and which hosted a top ten battle between Oklahoma and Villanova last season.

This season’s iteration of the Pearl Harbor Basketball Invitational will feature Cal, Seton Hall, Princeton and Hawai’i and will be played on Dec. 6th and 7th.

“The 75th Commemoration is about acknowledging all the men and women who have answered our nation’s call to duty including our ‘greatest generation’ World War II veterans and Pearl Harbor survivors,” said Committee Chairman Adm. (ret) Tom Fargo. “We’re excited to have FOX Sports return here to raise awareness about our veterans, as well as our active duty service members and civilians, and their tremendous contributions to our nation and to the world.”
