Boys Basketball Tip Off Classic

Boys' Tip Off Classic information

The Boys' Tip Off Classic began back in January of 2004.  The Breakdown staff wanted to showcase teams from across the state and provide unique, competitive matchups.  We also wanted to have top-rated teams with state tournaments aspirations.

The experiment worked out so well that now we host the No. 1 single day classic in Minnesota.

The boys and girls Tip Off Classic are run on different Saturdays in late November/early December.


Tickets prices 

Adults - $15.00

Students/Seniors- $10.00



Tickets prices for Younger Level 

Adults - $12.00
