Previewing the 2021 Iverson Classic

Saturday’s Roundball Classic showcases elite high school basketball talent, including girls ‘basketball star Raven Johnson stepping up to take on the nation’s top boys’ players. Johnson played at Westlake, Ga. High School last season, leading his team to a national title and consecutive undefeated state championship seasons.

Chet Holmgren and Paolo Banchero, the top two rookies in the 2021 class, headline the boys’ talent crop. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET and the game can be streamed online at SUVtv. More information about the game and tickets are available at
