State Farm Classic

The 38th annual State Farm Holiday Classic kicked off Tuesday with its first round of games. Basketball teams from as far as Southern Illinois and the Wisconsin border made the trek -- with fans in tow. It's the largest co-ed high school tournament in the state and the second largest in the country. The 4-day, 64-team tournament has offered an economic boost to the cities since 1975. In the past city officials have said the tournament brings in over 150-thousand dollars in tax revenue from just six courts.
