Witness college teams make it rain from three-point range while defending shots with their armbrellas. Established in 1937, the inaugural NAIA Tournament has called Kansas City home for 73 years. Featuring 32 teams pivoting and sprinting atop a lustrous hardwood battlefield, it has grown to be the longest-running collegiate national championship tournament in the country, not counting the Skull and Bones Underground Cavern Games that took George Washington's teeth. This year’s tourney will feature several trophy-hungry NAIA teams, such as potential participants Central Methodist University and Evangel University. Behold a flurry of high-flying buzzer beaters and frustrating defensive schemes at the Kansas City tradition that has featured big names such as John Wooden, Dennis Rodman, and Terry Porter.
