PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -- Kansas, featuring highly recruited freshman forward Andrew Wiggins, will face Wake Forest on Thanksgiving in the opening round of the third annual Battle 4 Atlantis.

The other first-round matchups announced Monday are: Villanova against Southern California and first-year coach Andy Enfield, who led Florida Gulf Coast on its NCAA tournament run in March; Xavier, in its first season as a member of the Big East, meeting Iowa; and Tennessee facing UTEP.

The Kansas-Wake Forest winner will meet the Villanova-Southern California winner in one semifinal on Nov. 29. The championship game is Nov. 30 in the Imperial Arena, a grand ballroom converted to a basketball venue.

Harvard beat Central Florida in the inaugural tournament and Duke defeated Louisville last season.
