Promote education, economic development and diversity while raising money for scholarships and institutions of higher learning.

Party with a Purpose

The 3nd Annual College Basketball All-Star Game & Extravaganza will be held Saturday, April 20, 2024 at Schottenstein Center, on the campus of The Ohio State University. The All-Star Game & Extravaganza provides everything you expect from an HBCU Classic, including the HBCU Ultimate Battle of The Bands.


The main attraction is the game when top players from Historically Black Colleges & Universities around the country versus dynamic players from universities across Ohio (Ohio All-Star Team vs. HBCU All-Star Team). And a world-class halftime show featuring a famous R&B recording artist.
