The Dick's Sporting Goods Holiday Classic (Dec. 27-29)

The Dick's Sporting Goods Holiday Classic is becoming the best tournament in the Twin Cities and annual host Hopkins enters its tournament unbeaten.

The Royals are favored to repeat as champions with senior Nia Coffey leading the way. But the talented lineup of teams, including several of Class 4A's top 10, could make for some upsets.
