The Alabama men’s basketball team will take on Clemson as part of the Holiday Hoopsgiving quadruple header, which will be played on Dec. 12, 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia at State Farm Arena, home of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks. The event is being organized by the VII Group.
“We’re excited about participating in this year’s Holiday Hoopsgiving event,” UA head coach Nate Oats said. “First, we will be able play the game in the home arena of the Atlanta Hawks and in front of our fans who may not otherwise have a chance to see us play in person. It also gives our program an opportunity to increase exposure on a national level. On top of everything else, we will face a quality ACC opponent in Clemson which will certainly strengthen our schedule and help build our resume. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of this event.”
In addition to the Crimson Tide, the event features a total of four Southeastern Conference teams who will all square off against high-profile programs for the single-day event. The other SEC programs include Mississippi State, who will take on Dayton, LSU, who faces off with South Florida, and Auburn, as the Tigers pair with Memphis.
