Throwback Thursday: Hinsdale Central Holiday Classic

With high school basketball on hold due to COVID-19, Hinsdale Central was not able to host its Holiday Classic 16-team tournament. Chris Eck (No. 12) went up for a basket in the inaugural tournament in 2015. The Red Devils beat Crete-Monee 66-59 in that game in a thrilling double overtime win. Sam Hoiberg (top right) stole the ball from an opponent en route to a 53-46 victory over Maine South in the second round of the tournament last year. Jack Hoiberg (No. 1) gets a shot off against Stevenson in a first round victory (47-42) over Stevenson in 2016. Central plans to host the tournament again in 2021, according to the event website.
