One of Mid-Missouri most anticipated annual events for high school basketball is changing locations this year.

The Norm Stewart Classic will be leaving Columbia College’s Southwell Complex and will move across town to Mizzou Arena.

The event will be the 12th annual basketball showcase named after former Missouri Tiger’s head basketball coach Norm Stewart.

Although Stewart never coached a game at Mizzou Arena, he stood on the sidelines of the Hearnes Center and Brewer Fieldhouse for 32 seasons.

The Norm Stewart Classic was started by the late Gary Filbert who was Norm’s assistant and coached at the Mexico High School.

The event raises money for the American Cancer Society’s Coaches vs. Cancer program.
