About

The Jamaica Classic is college basketball’s newest preseason tournament, and located just 90 minutes south of Miami. Conveniently located in one of the most iconic destinations in the Caribbean – beautiful Montego Bay, Jamaica. The SMG / Montego Bay Convention Centre is the host of all tournament games November 17-19, 2017.

With direct flights into Sangster International Airport (MBJ) from nearly every major U.S. city and an average November temperature of almost 80 degrees F, Montego Bay is the perfect destination for an early college basketball getaway.

CBS Sports will televise all games on Friday and Sunday Nationally across the United States, as well as streaming across the web.

All of the teams and those purchasing the official tournament events package will stay at the top rated all-inclusive 5 star Hyatt Ziva resort just minutes from the airport and even closer to the Montego Bay Convention Centre.

Join us in MoBay this November!
