NAIA Basketball Classic

Nov 05
Saturday, November 05 All Day

The classic features eight games over two days and acts as a season kick-off for the four schools, giving them an opportunity to display their talent early in the season. The two Great Plains Athletic Conference teams (Dakota Wesleyan and Mount Marty) will compete against the two North Star Athletic Association teams (Presentation and Valley City State).

“We have the greatest schedule of basketball games in the history of the Sanford Pentagon this year, and the NAIA Basketball Classic is a great event to start this historic season,” says Jesse Smith, vice president of the Sanford Sports Complex. “These two days will feature many athletes who have competed at the Pentagon during their prep careers and will give local fans a chance to cheer on their teams close to home.”

Tickets are available at and during the day of the games. Each ticket is good for the entire day. Admission is $15 for adults and $5 for students in kindergarten to college.

All games will be live-streamed at the Pentagon video portal. The cost is $7.95 for one day or $10.95 for both days. Visit https://portal.stretchinternet... to purchase.
