The annual double header between the state of Iowa's four division one basketball programs will continue. The event known as The Hy-Vee Classic has been extended through 2019.

The tournament features Iowa, Iowa State, UNI, and Drake all competing against each other at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines. The tournament started in 2012 so that high majors Iowa and Iowa State could still play their instate rivals. The last two years the event has sold out.

This year's classic is set for December 17th. Iowa will take on UNI, while Iowa State will play Drake.
