The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced the field of teams and game schedule for the 2017 Spalding Hoophall Classic, an annual basketball showcase now in its 16th year at Springfield College. Games will be played at Blake Arena on the campus of Springfield College January 12-16, during Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend.
The nation’s premier basketball event will once again showcase the top high school basketball teams from across the country, and will feature numerous top UConn recruiting targets - as well as a few Husky commits.
Earlier that day, fans can see UConn commit Josh Carlton
play for DeMatha Catholic High at 4:30 p.m. against Bishop Gorman High.
UConn, of course, will be playing at Georgetown that day at a yet-to-be determined time. If it's early enough, perhaps the coaches can get back in time to see Bamba's night game. If not, you can bet they'll be there on Sunday morning.
Here's the full schedule:
