Event Details

14th Annual Heartland Hoops Classic

The Heartland Hoops Classic is an annual high school basketball event held at the Heartland Events Center in Grand Island, Nebraska. It is a one day event comprised of eight games and features interclass match-ups not normally seen in regular season play. This year’s event will feature three Grand Island teams as well as two high-profile national teams.

Two out-of-state favorites return to the Hoops Classic to face off against Nebraska’s best Class A teams. Sunrise Christian Academy will face 2020 Class A State Champion Bellevue West and Wisconsin commit Chucky Hepburn. Sunrise Christian’s Elite Team has produced 38 Division I players, was a 2019 Geico Nationals qualifier, and is currently ranked No. 2 on the MaxPreps Way-Too-Early Top 25. Oak Hill Academy, a perennial national powerhouse, has produced 35 NBA players and countless Division I players over the years; the team is ranked No. 18 in the MaxPreps poll after graduating most of its starters. Oak Hill will take on Class A State runner-up Millard North and star point guard Hunter Sallis.
