College basketball returns to The Rocket City and in a big way for the 2023-24 season at the Von Braun Center.

The Rocket City Classic presented by Akima will take place on Dec. 13 when Auburn takes on NCAA Tournament participant UNC-Asheville. It will be the Tigers first game in Huntsville in 20 years.  Women’s basketball will come to the forefront as well with a battle of top 25 teams as Middle Tennessee takes on perennial national power Tennessee on Dec. 6.

Auburn is coming off a season that saw the Tigers advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, compiling a 21-13 record under Bruce Pearl.  The last time Auburn played at the Von Braun Center was a 105-56 win over Grambling on Nov. 29, 2003.
