Kansas leads field for next year's Battle 4 Atlantis

Kansas headlines the field for the 2013 Battle 4 Atlantis.

Seven of the eight teams in next year's field were announced Saturday night after No. 5 Duke beat No. 2 Louisville 76-71 in the 2012 title game.

Joining the Jayhawks are Villanova, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Southern California, UTEP and Xavier. The eighth team will be announced at a later date.

The tournament started in 2011 when Harvard beat Central Florida in the championship game.

The games are played in the Imperial Arena, a grand ballroom which is turned into a basketball venue.
