Basketball is much more than a game and this event will be a great opportunity for our program to be a part of something that is bigger than just who wins,” said Texas Tech Head Basketball Coach Mark Adams. “There is no tolerance for racism and we hope this game will help continue the discussion. We’re also looking forward to playing in Houston where Texas Tech has an incredible fanbase. It’ll be a great environment and trip for our team.”

“The Prairie View A&M Men's Basketball Program is really excited about participating for the second consecutive year in the Coaches Vs. Racism event,” said Prairie View A&M Head Basketball Coach Byron Smith. “The HBCU Roundball Classic is a worthy and essential event to continue to raise and maintain the awareness that is needed in the fight to end systemic racism.”

As part of its mission, CVR mobilizes coaches in the pro ranks as well as collegiate and amateur levels across the country to create an action-filled, educational and grassroots approach to inspire cultural and societal change in the world of sports. CVR has teamed with several Division I schools, college coaches, HBCU schools, and professional sports teams to promote awareness of Social Injustice, Economic Divide, Equality, Reform, and Systemic Racism (SEERS).
