Old Spice Classic pits eight college basketball teams in head-to-head match-ups

Thursday-Sunday, Nov. 22-25 – Old Spice Classic

various times Thursday-Friday and Sunday

There must be something in the air (balls!), because as of recently, Orlando’s seen its fair share of basketball-related hype: Last week, Amway Center landed a piece of the NCAA college basketball March Madness; the Orlando Magic continue to work it out sans Dwight Howard; and this week, the annual Old Spice Classic returns. This year’s Thanksgiving-weekend college hoops tournament pits eight teams – Vanderbilt, Gonzaga, Clemson, Davidson, Marist, Oklahoma, UTEP and West Virginia – in head-to-head match-ups throughout the weekend. And while Gonzaga might appear to be the big man on the bracket, this tourney is known for its draw of general fans of the game – both for the specific participating teams and not. And who knows? Maybe the Old Spice shirtless centaur will drop by for a game of horse. ’Cause that’d be pretty cool

just saying. – Aimee Vitek
