Columbia - The Norm Stewart Classic will once again be 48 straight hours of high school basketball. This year, there will be 47 boys and girls teams from across Missouri competing in the Classic. There is also a girls team playing from Iowa City, Iowa.
The Classic will be held at Columbia College's Southwell Complex Friday, December 1 through Sunday, December 3.
ABC 17 Sports Director Andrew Kauffman caught up with former Mizzou basketball coach Norm Stewart on Monday. Stewart says the event has gotten bigger every year.
