With the powerful combination of the Basketball Hall of Fame and their affinity for college basketball with the positive and exciting appeal of Chris Paul and his HBCU initiatives, this eccentric early-season HBCU college basketball showcase gives student-athletes from select HBCUs a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy and compete at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. This event, which will provide these student-athletes the same trip that big time college basketball programs get to experience, will include Norfolk St. University, Hampton University, Texas Southern University, and North Carolina A&T University.
