Pepsi Carolina Classic is Back

The 35th Pepsi Carolina Classic is back. The basketball tournament annually held during the winter break is scheduled for December 28th through the December 30th at South Florence High School. The classic was cancelled last year due to the pandemic.

For the first time, the event will also add a four-team girls’ bracket (Dillon, Lake View, North Augusta, West Florence) to go with its eight-team boys’ setup (Dillon, Hartsville, Lake City, Lower Richland, Marlboro County, North Augusta, South Florence, West Florence).

Proceeds from the tournament benefit the Pee Dee Area Boys & Girls Clubs, which uses this basketball event as one of its annual fundraisers.
