Two of the nation’s most prominent historically Black colleges and universities are separated by just 45 miles and are MEAC foes. This weekend’s meeting, the inaugural HBCU Classic Game, is an event constructed to promote the efforts of the HBCU athletes and communities.
NBA All-Star Weekend is known for the celebrity sightings, iconic NBA legends, major fashion statements and everything in-between.
