The Jimmy V Basketball Classic began in 1995 to raise money for V Foundation for Cancer Research, which has awarded more than $100 million to fund cancer research grants nationwide. The V Foundation was founded by ESPN and the late Jim Valvano, former head coach at North Carolina State and ESPN basketball analyst, who fell victim to the disease in 1993.
This is the 10th consecutive season that the Classic has been played at Madison Square Garden.
