Hoophall Classic canceled for 2021 due to coronavirus pandemic

The Basketball Hall of Fame has canceled the Hoophall Classic usually played on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend because of the coronavirus pandemic.

It would have been the 20th edition of the high school showcase.

More than 100 future NBA players have taken part in the event, including Anthony Davis, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Jayson Tatum and Zion Williamson. Among those playing in 2020: LeBron “Bronny” James Jr., with his father watching in the stands.

The Springfield, Massachusetts-based Hall of Fame says it hopes to relaunch the event in 2022.
