The University of Alabama men’s basketball team will take on the Clemson Tigers of the ACC in Atlanta as part of the 2020 Holiday Hoopsgiving quadruple header, which will be played in State Farm Arena, home of the Atlanta Hawks, on Dec. 12. The event is being organized by the VII Group.
Alabama is one of four SEC teams who will take part in the event, joining Auburn, LSU and Mississippi State
“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 three additional Southeastern Conference teams squaring off against other high-profile programs in the single-day event – Mississippi State vs. Dayton, LSU vs. South Florida and Auburn vs. Memphis. Tickets, game times and television designations will be announced at a later date.
