The bracket has been set for the 2015 Charleston Classic, according to a report by CBSSports.com.

The opening round on November 19 will feature Virginia vs. Bradley and Seton Hall vs. Long Beach State on the one side, and Ole Miss vs. George Mason and Oklahoma State vs. Towson on the other.

In the semifinals, the winner of Virginia/Bradley will face the winner of Seton Hall/Long Beach State, while the other two winners face off on the other side.

The Cavaliers are the clear favorites in this tournament. Interestingly, Virginia has never beaten anyone on their side of the bracket.

Virginia and Bradley have only gone head to head twice, with the Braves taking both meetings. The last outing was in the inaugural College Basketball Invitational postseason tournament, where the Hoos lost in Charlottesville 96-85 in 2008.

The Cavaliers are 0-3 against Seton Hall, with the two teams' last outing in 2007, the same season, a 74-60 loss to the No. 23 Pirates.

Virginia has never faced Long Beach State.

The tip-off times for the opening round have not yet been announced.
