The Evansville Sports Corporation and the University of Southern Indiana are teaming up to create the Small College Basketball Hall of Fame Classic scheduled for November 18 & 19, 2016 at the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana.  This inaugural classic will feature six NCAA Division II teams for two days of predetermined matchups at one of the best new arenas in the Midwest.  Our overall goal in creating this Classic is to build an event that pays homage to those that have given so much to the game of basketball while showcasing some fantastic teams in a first class arena.  In an effort to tie it all together, the Classic will get started with a tribute to the greats that paved the way for small college basketball schools with the Hall of Fame Induction banquet Thursday night (Nov. 17) on the floor of the Ford Center.
