The Show-Me State Classic (SMC) will take place at the Chaifetz Arena on Friday, November 22. The game will feature the Harris-Stowe State University Hornets vs. the Lincoln University Blue Tigers at 6 p.m.
Harris-Stowe Athletic Director Dorianne Johnson said, “We are excited to be participating in the Show-Me Classic along with Lincoln University.”
The highly anticipated contest between the only two HBCU’s in Missouri dates back to the 1980-81 season. The teams have met several times since the initial contest, but this year’s matchup is the fourth to engage students, alumni and the greater St. Louis community to this magnitude.
“This event will be a great opportunity to bring together two amazing institutions in a competitive environment,” Johnson said. “I would like to thank BCSG 360, Win-Win Promo, and everyone else who was involved in making this event happen.”
This year’s classic is organized by BCSG 360 and will take place as part of the events and activities of the St. Louis Heritage Football Classic (November 23, 2019, at The Dome at America’s Center-Lincoln University vs. Kentucky State University). As a result, the Show Me Classic will feature a Battle of the Bands post-game event.
The organization is currently offering a Win-Win Promo (limited time online pre-sale ticket campaign). Tickets are $30 each. A $30 ticket will provide admission to the Show-Me Classic basketball game, the Battle of the Bands on Friday and the St. Louis Heritage Football Classic on Saturday. Harris-Stowe State University has been allotted 2,000 Win-Win Promo tickets; for every ticket, sold $10 goes to Harris-Stowe State University. Help Harris-Stowe State raise $20,000!
