Dr Pepper Classic 2021
Two Nights. Four Games. America's Best. January 29-30, 2021
McCallie's annual basketball showcase will continue this year with the Sixth McCallie-Dr Pepper Classic. As always, the field is loaded with talented players and powerhouse teams.
IMG Academy headlines the lineup. The Ascenders won the 2019 High School National Championship a few months after participating in the Dr Pepper Classic. That year's squad included 2020 NBA First-Round Draft selection Josh Green of the Dallas Mavericks and Jahmi'us Ramsey, second-round pick of the Sacramento Kings.
This year's squad features the No. 8-ranked prep player in the nation and five of the top 50 rated players. Knoxville Catholic has two juniors who are on Division I programs' radars, and Hamilton Heights boasts two of the top eight-rated seniors in Tennessee.
