Arvest Bank is pleased to once again host one of the area’s most eagerly anticipated early-season boys basketball tournaments – the Arvest Classic – beginning Nov. 29 at the Parkview High School Fieldhouse in Springfield.
Host team Parkview, which finished last season ranked No. 10 in the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association Class 5 ranking, will play Notre Dame Regional from Cape Girardeau in first-round action at 7 p.m. Notre Dame Regional is one of two new participants in the Arvest Classic this season, joining Helias Catholic from Jefferson City.

Other first-round games pit Fayetteville (Ark.) vs. Raytown at 4 p.m., Nixa vs. Lafayette (Wildwood) at 5:30 p.m., and Kickapoo vs. Helias Catholic at 8:30 p.m.

Friday’s second-round games also start at 4 p.m., while Saturday’s action begins at 11 a.m. The tournament championship game is expected to start at about 4 p.m. on Saturday.

“The Arvest Classic typically provides teams with good early-season tests, and we expect the same this year,” Arvest Bank Springfield president Brad Crain said. “We also have some new teams playing this year, in addition to several out-of-area teams, which adds to the excitement level surrounding this tournament. Just like the players and coaches, we are ready for tip-off.”

In addition to the games, Arvest will team with Make-A-Wish Missouri & Kansas for a special presentation at halftime of Saturday’s 11 a.m. game. Arvest also will present an awards ceremony following the championship game.
