[jwplayer lpqhoLGb-BmKM743H]

With the Jordan Brand Classic, McDonald’s All-American Game and Nike Hoops Summit canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 Allen Iverson Roundball Classic will serve as this year’s lone high school basketball postseason showcase.

Saturday’s Roundball Classic features high school basketball’s elite talent, including girls basketball star Raven Johnson taking the floor to compete against the best boys players in the nation. Johnson starred at Westlake (Ga.) High School this past season, leading her team to a national title and consecutive unbeaten, state championship seasons.

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