The holiday hoops season officially begins Dec. 19 at Brookland-Cayce High School.

The annual Cayce Roundball Classic takes place Dec. 19-22. This year’s field includes 16 teams, including defending Class 2A champion Gray Collegiate and last year’s American Bracket champion Lancaster.

The opening day will feature two American Bracket games. Cross Creek (Ga.) will face Sumter at 7 p.m., followed by Marion versus North Augusta at 8:30 p.m.

The North Augusta/Marion winner will face the winner of the Day Two matchup between the War Eagles and the host team at 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 21. The Cross Creek/Sumter winner gets either A.C. Flora or Providence Day (NC) at 5:30 p.m. the same day.

This year’s tournament for the first time will feature a 45-second shot clock. It was approved for use in tournaments by the S.C. High School League.
