Details are being finalized and will be announced in the coming months. Added Charlotte Mayor Vi Lyles: “Charlotte has a rich history of hosting high-profile basketball events, including the NBA All-Star Game, NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament games, the ACC Men's Basketball Tournament, the CIAA Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments and this year’s Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Shootout.

"The four participating schools represent some of the very best in intercollegiate athletics, and the event will be another great addition to the sports lineup in the community." Morrison said the possibility exists to expand the event to include other Jordan-affiliated schools in 2023 or 2024, or to extend the partnership into subsequent years. “We’re hoping this will be the start of one of the most anticipated, coveted and competitive events in all of college basketball each and every year,” said Morrison. “Charlotte has all the resources to make this an overwhelming success including an incredibly passionate fan base, and we look forward to seeing this event grow in stature for years to come.” ###
