Corky Kell + Dave Hunter Basketball Classic event starts busy holiday tournament schedule

The inaugural Corky Kell + Dave Hunter Basketball Classic will jump-start a packed schedule of basketball tournaments that will be held throughout December and into the New Year.

The Kell event, which has been associated with football for 32 years, will televise four basketball games on the Peachtree Sports Network on Saturday from Norcross.

“It is so awesome. I was telling the kids we get to play on TV, and that is something that I wanted to do,” said Baldwin girls coach Kizi Walker. “Hopefully college coaches will be able to see them. I have a lot of talent on the team.”

The final game of the Kell event will feature Class 3A No. 2 Douglass taking on Class 7A Norcross.

The Kell is one of the many tournaments that will attract some of the best state and national teams.

Norcross will play host to the Hawks-Naismith Holiday Classic on Dec. 9. The Tournament of Champions Super Saturday is taking place at Wheeler on Saturday, where the host Wildcats (6-0) will face Alexander (5-0) in a battle of undefeated teams. That event precedes the full Tournament of Champions Holiday Classic scheduled for Dec. 27-28.

Marietta will hold The Lemon Street Classic on Dec. 21-23 with two brackets full of top-tier teams. Hart County will hold the 16th annual McDonald’s Shootout Dec. 27-29 in Hartwell. At McDonough, the Chuck Miller Memorial Holiday Classic will be held Dec. 27-29. And Woodward Academy will host the War Eagle Basketball Classic Dec. 15-16.
