A Holiday Classic

Record #:
Conceived by North Carolina State University basketball coach C. Everett Case, the Dixie Classic was a three-day, eight-team basketball tournament extravaganza, featuring North Carolina teams against other national basketball powers. Begun in the then new Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh in December 1949, the tournament lasted another twelve years and was a tremendous success. The Dixie Classic was canceled in 1960, after several players were involved in a point shaving scandal.
