If you’re a fan of college basketball, this week is an awfully exciting time. In addition to competitive games across the country, the Battle 4 Atlantis is back with a host of outstanding teams vying to leave the Bahamas a tournament champion.

This year, the Battle 4 Atlantis will once again feature eight teams and games will be played over three days. This year’s teams include a “who’s who” of top college basketball programs, including North Carolina, Villanova, and Memphis. Those teams will be joined by Michigan, Texas Tech, Northern Iowa, Arkansas, and Stanford.

While there are plenty of good teams in this year’s tournament, most college basketball fans are keeping a close eye on the North Carolina Tar Heels, which haven’t played in the Battle 4 Atlantis since the 2019-2020 season. As of this writing, North Carolina is ranked 20th in the country, with some Tar Heels fans saying the team is better than its ranking suggests and should run away with the Battle 4 Atlantis.

Villanova, however, may have something to say about that. The Wildcats are coming off a tough loss to Penn and trying to redeem themselves to move back up the college basketball rankings. And as the 21st-ranked team in the country, they’re right on North Carolina’s heels. But let’s face it — this is college basketball. And if we know anything about the sport, it’s that upsets can and often do happen.

So, it’s time to get ready for exciting basketball coming out of the Bahamas this week. And here’s how you can stream the Battle 4 Atlantis as games tip off on November 22.
