Basketball Hall Of Fame Belfast Classic To Air On CBS Sports Network
EDISON, N.J. – The CBS Sports Network has announced that it will televise all four games of the inaugural Basketball Hall of Fame Belfast Classic. The two-day, four-team event will take place at the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland, from Dec. 1-2, 2017. Holy Cross is one of four teams which will play in the event, along with La Salle, Manhattan and Towson.
The Belfast Classic will begin on Dec. 1 with Holy Cross facing Manhattan at 11:30 a.m., followed by La Salle and Towson at 2:00 p.m. The consolation game will be played at 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 2, with the championship game following at noon. Please note all games are listed in Eastern Standard Time (EST).
“It is great that the games from the Basketball Hall of Fame Belfast Classic will be shown on the CBS Sports Network,” said Holy Cross head coach Bill Carmody. “Many of our passionate fans will be heading to Belfast for the tournament, but now those who cannot make it will be able to watch us from home.”
The Basketball Hall of Fame has partnered with Sport Changes Life, a registered U.K. charity and U.S. nonprofit organization that works in disadvantaged communities to help young people find a path to a brighter future with the help of international student-athletes. The Basketball Hall of Fame, in combination with the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, aims to support this cause by extending their reach across the Atlantic. The Rory Foundation will also join the cause.
