Hoop Hype XL | College Basketball Showcase will present one of college basketball’s biggest games of the 2021-22 season as Big 12 contender Oklahoma State Cowboys take on the Houston Cougars, who are coming off an American Athletic Conference Tournament Championship and NCAA Final Four run.
The charitable component for Hoop Hype XL | College Basketball Showcase will be a community campaign called the [a3] Initiative. The [a3] Initiative, in connection with U-Sports Group and the Hoop Hype XL basketball platform, will strive to blur the lines between sport and service, inspiring the participating student-athletes to use their gifts to empower and improve the lives of those who are less-fortunate.
“Hoop Hype XL will provide college basketball programs with a true alternative to traditional neutral-site events,” U-Sports Group President Rhossi Carron says. “Our event platforms were designed for elite college teams to compete on a national stage and to help their student-athletes develop their passion for giving back in a genuine way. The idea of blending sport and service is at the heart of U-Sports Group and will be reflected throughout our collection of sporting events. We are very excited about the opportunity to utilize the Hoop Hype XL basketball platform to impact the lives of children in the DFW Metroplex.”
