Kickoff to Basketball Season
The Champions Classic, which hosts four of the most accomplished teams in college basketball - Kentucky, Duke, Kansas and Michigan State – is one of the most anticipated events in college basketball. Fans across the country look forward to watching the two game series dubbed the “Final Four in November” and consider it the unofficial opening of basketball season.
Connor Sports is proud to provide a playing surface that acts as center stage for an event that marks the beginning of college basketball season. Our commitment to sport builds strong foundations for the 2016-17 basketball season as Connor Sports offers turnkey logistics, installation and on-site support for the Champions Classic.
Final Four in Phoenix
Each of the four competing teams are ranked in the top 10 going into the 2016-17 college basketball season. This means there is a good chance that come March one of the four Champions Classic teams may find themselves on a Connor Sports basketball court at the Final Four in Phoenix.
