The third annual McCallie-Dr Pepper TEN Classic basketball event is February 2 and 3. McCallie is hosting another exciting weekend of prep basketball. The past two years have showcased high-level high school basketball as well as an inspirational guest speaker at the kickoff luncheon.
This year’s event features Top 20-ranked Oak Hill Academy, Ensworth, Hamilton Heights Christian Academy and McCallie in a two-day, four-game classic. Oak Hill played in the inaugural Dr Pepper TEN Classic in 2016 and went on to win the Prep National Championship, as did La Lumiere in 2017, a Dr Pepper TEN Classic participant last year.
The Mountain View Auto Group Luncheon on Friday features former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf. Ryan was a Heisman Trophy Finalist at Washington State, the No. 2 pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, and author of the book “Lying to Myself, the Ryan Leaf Story.” He will share his unbelievable story of turning his life around from an NFL bad boy.
The Steam Logistics Dunk Contest follows the luncheon shortly after 2:00 pm in the SAC.
Tickets for the Friday and Saturday games are on sale. Game tickets are $20 per night for general admission. Reserved baseline seats are $50 per night, and reserved courtside seats are $75 per night. A preferred parking space in the SAC parking area is $20 per night. All these options are available on the McCallie Dr Pepper TEN Classic webpage located on the Athletics tab at www.McCallie.org.
