Girls Basketball Tip Off Classic

Breaking News

Get ready...our in-season basketball events will be returning this winter, starting with our Tip Off Classics for boys' and girls' basketball the first two weekends in December!

 

Tip Off Classic information

The 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 for Friday night, Dec. 3, 2021 — 
Varsity & Lower Levels - $10 Adults and $8 Students/Seniors

Tickets for Saturday, Dec. 4, 2021 — 
Varsity - $13 Adults and $10 Students/Seniors
Lower Levels - $10 Adults and $8 Students/Seniors
