Get ready, hoops fans! The Emerald Coast Classic is back, and it’s going to be a slam-dunk! Northwest Florida State College is ready to roll out the red carpet for Division I basketball dynamos this Thanksgiving weekend. So, forget the turkey, and pass on the pumpkin pie because this tourney is hotter than grandma’s stuffing!

Leading this year’s star-studded lineup is the Southeast’s own basketball titans, the Alabama Crimson Tide. They’re riding high on waves of success, having made two sweet trips to the Sweet 16 in the past three seasons. With the formidable tactician, Coach Nate Oats, at the helm, this squad is the one to watch!

But don’t count out Big Ten’s pride, Ohio State, and Pac-12’s swansong, Oregon. They’re packing a punch and are ready to bring their A-game to the hard court. Talk about an epic battle of the conferences!

No one can disguise the buzz in the air. As Maury Hanks, the chief executive officer of Global Sports and tournament director, puts it, “The reputation of our tournament has allowed us to continue to attract some of the top basketball programs.” So buckle up, folks! The Emerald Coast of Florida is set to sizzle with this high-octane basketball rendezvous.

Ready for the tip-off? Circle Black Friday on your calendars. The action-packed opener features Alabama squaring off against Ohio State at 6:00 pm. The nightcap has Santa Clara duking it out with Oregon at 8:30 pm. But hold your horses as the excitement continues with Saturday’s schedule pitching Friday’s victors against each other at 6:00 pm!

So, who’s got tickets? If you don’t, you might have to hustle! This show-stopping spectacle is sold out. But hey, don’t let that burst your bubble. Third-party vendors might be your saving shot!

Get set, everyone, for the Emerald Coast Classic. It’s not just a game; it’s a basketball extravaganza! Don’t miss the chance to witness the magic of college hoops at its finest. It’s going to be nothing short of epic!
