HBCU All-Stars LLC have announced that the 2023 HBCU All-Star Game, a college basketball showcase highlighting the best HBCU players in the country, will be held at Texas Southern University H&PE Arena in Houston on Sunday, April 2 at 4:00 PM, ET.
Tickets for the second annual HBCU All-Star Game are officially on-sale and can be purchased through Eventbrite at HBCU All-Game. The basketball game will feature the best talent from the four Historically Black Athletic Conferences, representing players from the MEAC & SIAC versus players from the SWAC & CIAA, along with Tennessee State, Hampton, and North Carolina A&T State Universities.
Travis L. Williams, HBCU All-Stars, LLC Founder/CEO and former head coach of two HBCUs Tennessee State University and Fort Valley State University shared, “Texas Southern University is one of the most prestigious HBCUs in the country and a perfect location for this annual event. We are truly excited about the opportunity to make history once again during Final Four Weekend and host the first ever HBCU All-Star Game on an HBCU campus. This is an unbelievable opportunity to honor HBCU's contribution to the great game of college basketball and showcase the nation’s best HBCU student-athletes and brilliant coaches on a national stage during college basketball’s biggest weekend. This historic endeavor will continue raising national awareness of our prestigious HBCUs rich legacy of academic and athletic achievement.”
The HBCU All-Star Game will air live on the CBS Television Network and will be available to stream on Paramount+.
The H&PE Arena serves as the home of Texas Southern University Tigers in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) and is a multi-purpose facility located in the metro-Houston area.
This event is far more than a basketball game. It will celebrate Black culture, Black excellence, and Black history through the HBCU Experience and will be highlighted by a HBCU All-Stars College Admissions Fair, Community Outreach and Engagement, Pro Day Combine, Welcome Reception, Awards Ceremony, and Social Justice & Civil Rights panel discussion. Also surrounding the game, HBCU All-Stars LLC will stage the HBCU All-Star Game Experience, a week-long festival that will kick off the week on Tuesday, March 28 and conclude the following Tuesday after the Championship game (April 4).
The HBCU All-Star Game will generate black tourism dollars to stimulate the local Houston community and invest in youth and senior citizens outreach programs. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the HBCU All-Stars Scholarship Fund.
