Welcome to the 56 teams joining us this weekend for Hoops Classic 2018! Follow the games and plays on Twitter, plus live-streaming, and action photos

Southwestern Adventist University welcomes you to Hoops Classic 2018.  It is a privilege to have you on our campus as your basketball acumen and skills take center stage.  Take advantage of being in the limelight.  Dazzle us with the impossible.  But as you continually elevate your game, I pray that you stay grounded and true to the One that has brought you to the 23rd Annual. May we become fans of you, not just of your game.  May we be impressed by your life, not necessarily your style.  And may He, who began a good work in you bring it to completion, not as you hoist the hardware, but at the very day of Christ Jesus.

"In Him we Live, we Move, we Exist." Acts 17:28
