Dr Pepper Classic 2020
Two Nights. Five Games. America's Best. January 31-Feb 1, 2020
The Fifth Annual Dr Pepper Classic is Back!
This year’s event features current top-10 nationally-ranked programs Sunrise Christian Academy (KS) and Hamilton Heights Christian Academy (TN), as well as Memphis East and McCallie. Additionally, The Webb School (Bell Buckle, TN), and Howard of Chattanooga will join the festivities in a two-day, five-game classic.
Sunrise Christian is perennially ranked among the top 25 in the nation, has reached No. 5 this season, and boasts Buddy Hield as one of its most famous alums. Hield is a member of the NBA’s Sacramento Kings and the 2016 National Collegiate Player of the Year at the University of Oklahoma.
Memphis East won three straight state titles from 2016-2018, and Hamilton Heights, ranked as high as No. 2 nationally this season, has recently produced several NBA First-Round Draft Picks and NCAA Division I standouts. Keon Johnson, a senior at Webb, is the top-rated player in Tennessee and has already signed with the University of Tennessee.
