Jimmy V Classic Tickets Information

Back to Top

The Jimmy V Classic is an annual college basketball event in honor of former North Carolina State basketball coach and ESPN commentator Jim Valvano and his courage as he fought cancer. The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded in 1993 and the Jimmy V Classic started in 1995. Over the last 11 seasons, ESPN has hosted Jimmy V Week for Cancer Research, an initiative aimed at raising money toward cancer research the week that the Classic is played.

The men's event was played at Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey, upon its inception, but moved to Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York, in 2003. Beginning in 2002, a women's basketball doubleheader was added for each year, but that was reduced to a single game in 2005 - typically a marquee matchup involving highly-ranked teams where one of the participants plays at their home arena. In the most recent Jimmy V Classic, Villanova topped Gonzaga 88-72 and Syracuse beat Connecticut 72-63 on the men's side. In the women's game, Connecticut - who has played in the Classic each year since 2011 - defeated Notre Dame 80-71.
