How to watch: Allen Iverson Roundball Classic featuring MaxPreps National Players of the Year Chet Holmgren and Raven Johnson
Paolo Banchero, Jerddarian Davison, Kennedy Chandler and TyTy Washington among headliners for the anticipated all-star game.
The Allen Iverson Roundball Classic takes place Saturday in Tennessee as the only true high school basketball postseason showcase on the slate after the McDonald's All-American Game, Jordan Brand Classic and Nike Hoops Summit were called off due to the pandemic for a second consecutive year.
Among the storylines will be girls basketball MaxPreps National Player of the Year Raven Johnson stepping on the floor to compete with the
best boys players in the country. The 5-foot-8 point guard led
Westlake (Atlanta) to back-to-back unbeaten state championship seasons.
The game will also feature the boys MaxPreps National Player of the Year in Chet Holmgren, who just led Minnehaha Academy to a fourth consecutive state championship in Minnesota and will play at Gonzaga next season.
How to watch
Date: Saturday, May 8 | Time: 6 p.m. local time
Location: Bartlett High School (Bartlett, Tenn.)Live stream: SUVtv
Holmgren will be matched up against top-ranked senior forward Paolo Banchero, who missed his senior season of high school and instead competed for club team BFL Prep. A strong performance for Banchero head-to-head against Holmgren could leave the door open for the Duke bound forward to supplant the 7-foot center for top spot in the Class of 2021.
Other players to watch include MaxPreps All-Americans Kendall Brown, Kennedy Chandler, Matthew Cleveland, Daimion Collins, Jerddarian Davison, Nolan Hickman, Hunter Sallis, Terquavion Smith and TyTy Washington.
