Due to a recent change to the Hoop City Classic schedule, two of the nation’s top teams in the country are guaranteed to play at the Corn Palace in December.

Prep basketball powerhouses Findlay Prep (Nevada) and La Lumiere (Indiana) will play in the nightcap of the Hoop City Classic on Friday, Dec. 28 at the Corn Palace. Last season, Findlay Prep defeated La Lumiere in the Geico Nationals quarterfinals.

Originally, Findlay Prep was to play Mountain Brook (Alabama) in the opening round of the classic on Dec. 27, with the winner facing La Lumiere the next night.

On Dec. 27, Lower Brule will play Mountain Brook at 6:30 p.m. in the second game of the night, while DeLaSalle (Minnesota) plays Findlay Prep in the nightcap.

On Dec. 28, Mountain Brook and DeLaSalle will play in the Gary Munsen Tournament. The loser faces Mitchell at the Corn Palace, while winner plays Yankton at the Sanford Pentagon. Mitchell and Yankton will play on Dec. 28.

The rest of the schedule, which was released last month, remains the same. The lineup also includes five-star recruit Matthew Hurt, who plays for John Marshall (Minnesota). John Marshall plays Brandon Valley on Dec. 29 at the Sanford Pentagon.
