2019 Holiday Classic Tip Off Night

Coming December 23rd, 2019...

Before The Holiday Classic officially begins on December 26th, we will showcase some of the best talent San Diego has to offer. Six San Diego teams, three games, one packed gymnasium.

The Holiday Classic "Tip Off Night" consistently produces some of the most highly attended all-San Diego basketball games of the season.  Come be a part of the action starting December 23rd at 5:00 pm.

2019 Participants

San Diego


The Cavers come into the 2019-20 season as the defending CIF San Diego DIII champions. They are led by one of the county's top guards, A.J. Burgin.



Coach Sam Eshelman has established the Lancers as Open Division contenders for this season,  their first year of eligibility . Senior guard Jailen Nelson is a threat to score 30 on any given night.

Foothills Christian


The Knights were CIF Open Division finalists last season and may be poised to return to that game again. Yale-signee Yassine Gharram is one of many threats to light up the scoreboard for Coach Brad Leaf.

St. Augustine


Always in the mix at the top of the San Diego basketball rankings, this year is no different for the Saintsmen. Texas Tech-signee Chibuzo Agbo headlines the roster. 

Cathedral Catholic


The Dons have an abundance of Division 1 talent: Hawaii-signee Beon Riley and two guys with multiple D1 offers, Dillon Wilhite and Obinna Anyanwu.

Torrey Pines


The defending CIF Open Division champs return only one starter from last year's title team, but he's a good one. Stanford-signee Brandon Angel is a double-double threat every night.


All games will be held at Torrey Pines High School.
